Looking Good: Barnes & Noble Earnings, LinkedIn Profiles, Childhood Games [Podcast]

On today’s edition of the Morning Media Menu, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog discussed new developments at book retailer Barnes & Noble, professional network LinkedIn, and weird games we used to play as children.

If you haven’t updated your profile on LinkedIn in a while, you might want to start now. LinkedIn profiles are getting a makeover that could affect the way recruiters see you.

In other news, Barnes & Noble had a positive earnings report this quarter, at least according to Wall Street. Lattes and printed books under one roof are safe for now.

Finally, we took a look at the artist who visualized games we play as children, like avoiding cracks in the sidewalk, and shared our own stories as well.
