Over the next months, Mr. Unusual occasionally posted things on his LinkedIn profile. Once, he wrote a blog post in which he mentioned his next blog post was going to bash a company that happened to be my former employer – a large bank.
He never wrote the post.
Another time, not long after several posts from me about my company’s emerging green technologies conference, he posted a question to no one in particular about new automotive green technologies.
I googled the answer to the question, but did not reply.
After that, he was very quiet. All I could see was the occasional “new connection” notification, which he seemed to have a lot of, although judging by the fact that he was connected to me and had never removed that connection on his end, I didn’t give his numerous connections much thought.
Until yesterday, when I noticed he connected to the two women who I had spoken with at the Seattle office of It’s Just Lunch.
