Bright.com bought by LinkedIn.com

Caught this last week and saw that it wasn't posted here yet.  It looks like Linkedin in expanding it's influence in the job space, like it needed more.  It is Linkedin's biggest acquisition so far; they paid $120 Million in stock and cash to acquire Bright.com.  Not bad for a 3 year old start-up.

Thanks.
