LinkedIn looks promising

About a month ago, I joined LinkedIn, the latest service to hit the web to offer a way of networking together people who know each other. Unlike those networks which offer a social-only structure – almost a kind of online speed dating system – LinkedIn is geared to business networking.

Recently, I seem to be catching articles everywhere about LinkedIn, the latest published yesterday by IT industry guru Esther Dyson (read it here).

LinkedIn is still in beta. But it looks very promising as one other means of connecting business people. I was truly amazed when I joined up to see more than 20 people I know already using it.
