Photos: LinkedIn celebrates 2009

December 22, 2009

Saturday night, December 12th, LinkedIn celebrated 2009 in style at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. As our CEO, Jeff Weiner, said at the party, our families make it possible for us to do the work that we do on a daily basis by supporting us at home. This night gave us an opportunity to say thank you for our families' support, enjoy the company of our co-workers and celebrate 2009 together.
