Thanks. I had already noticed a cross linking at Linked in between Aspect
Security and OWASP and told them to fix it and they indicated they had.

Maybe this is the same thing recurring?? Or another cross link problem. I'll
investigate and ask them to fix again if necessary.

Thanks, Dave

Yesterday, when you viewed as a example my profile
http://www.linkedin.com/in/tombrennan in Linked in and clicked on the
company name of the OWASP Foundation Inc., it was linked to the commercial
side of Aspect Security business profile in Linked'In company profile ~ this
might have been a error?

I modified the listed this morning to be correct for OWASP Foundation Inc.
and also mirrored it to OWASP listing however the company link still refers
to Aspect Security in the Title and Domain.  Can you please ratify this by
communication with Linked'In to resolve it - perhaps a email to customer
support to resolve this error. You might just want to create a Aspect
Security business profile linked to Aspect Security Inc.

(Note attached screenshot)

If you goto your profile in Linked'In
http://www.linkedin.com/in/wichers and scroll down to OWASP (note this is
not OWASP Foundation Inc.) this now links to the newly created OWASP

So, if you look at Linked'in you will see two common listings for people
they either list OWASP or OWASP Foundation Inc. the OWASP Foundation Inc. is
the one I am talking about and I am alerting people to correct it to be
OWASP Foundation Inc. as the proper name of the organization.

You can also go into Linked'In and then search on Company and use OWASP
Foundation and you will see the listings as well.

Ring me if you have any questions.
