In December, computer security company Symantec published a dire warning about hackers using fake LinkedIn accounts.


Symantec warned that hackers are using fake accounts as a way to gather information about business professionals to use in some unknown but presumably nefarious way, such as a "social engineering" attack, where hackers trick you into revealing passwords, or clicking on malware.

Amelia Pond's LinkedIn account, while clearly fake, does not appear to be have been created for such nefarious ends.

Instead, she serves as a reminder that there are a lot of really funny people in the tech world, lurking in unexpected places, waiting to make you laugh.
