Pity poor Linkedin. From an operational point of view it's doing everything right: The company's revenues rose 126 percent to $140 million in Q3 2011 and it would have been profitable if not for taxes. Its stock remains at a buoyant $71 or so despite heavy dilution from insider sales and new share issues.
It should be the most exciting tech company on the block. Instead, it remains a media wallflower. The notion that Linkedin is boring has become something of a media meme.
