According to Techflash, the Seattle-based engineers who created Cubeduel aren’t sure whether the service was shut down because it hit some unknown LinkedIn traffic limit, or whether LinkedIn had privacy or other objections. The service asked LinkedIn users to rate their professional connections head to head — sort of like the “who’s hotter” Web sites from a few years back, only for work.
If LinkedIn pulls the site permanently, developers Adam Doppelt and Tony Wright won’t be too disappointed — Wright told TechFlash that Cubeduel was just meant as a harmless diversion, not the next Google, and only took a couple of weeks to build.
