If you have a ton of time on your hands at work, figure out whether you're in trouble for that or not. After you've figured that out, rate co-workers, both past and present with Cubeduel for LinkedIn. Cubeduel is a website on its own but it connects to your LinkedIn via OAuth. Once it's connected it will show you pictures of two of your former or current colleagues and will ask you to rate which one you liked working with more. Sounds familiar? If you know Mark Zuckerberg's history, especially if you watched The Social Network, you'll know that his social networking venture began with FaceMash, a site to rate Harvard girls.
Cubeduel also records the votes anonymously and collects them by company so you can see who the most popular employees of say, Google or Cisco are. The men behind the site are Adam Doppelt and Tony Wright. Wright said that the site's been in formation for a little over two weeks and “thousands” of people have signed up. So if you're feeling particularly venemous about a co-worker and you just have to let off some negative steam, sign on, try it and tell us what you think.
