Recently we lost a friend to suicide.
His death was tragic and shocking to those who knew him, but Linkedin had no idea it had happened. He must created an account there some time back and never got around to making contact with me. Now Linkedin keeps telling me to connect with him.
To the inhuman search engines deep inside the Linkedin server farm we are a perfect match. We went to the same university and have some of the same employers on our resumes. The machines at Linkedin have no idea that my human, feeling self is freshly reminded of his death every time his profile appears on my suggestion list.
