Are you using Linked in to network? If so I think this is a great tool, the question that I have is what else we can use this tool for. There seams to be a lot of groups that are starting up and I just have not got the complete feel for how we can leverage the group. I have become a member of a number of groups on there and the one that I find the most useful is Linkedin DBA. They have up a nice blog and it appears that the membership is growing. If you use the linked in groups with SQL Server I am curious on how you use this tool. If you expand beyond linked in and look at Pulse and Konnects do you see the same activity? I see linked in as a great way to keep up to date with people I know, and people that I have lost track of. I have reconnected with a lot of friends that I have not seen in a while.
