Before LinkedIn…

I taught an “advanced,” upper-level course called Introduction to Microsoft Office. This course covered the leading edge WYSIWYG productivity software from Microsoft. Gone was the command line or Word Perfect field codes. Students were required to “doubleclick” on “icons.” One student in my class earned an interview by putting her resume in PowerPoint and turning it in to the recruiter on a floppy disk — call it UnLinkedln.
