A week or so ago I asked readers to tell me how and why they used LinkedIn. The response was awesome. Here’s the original post and comments
The conversation fell out somewhat as I anticipated. Many people just didn’t seem to get much out of it. Successful users explained that it took a fair amount of consistent effort to benefit.
I wrote to an executive at LinkedIn and asked them to participate in the conversation. They responded by telling me they were pretty busy but my chances of getting to participate would improve if I used their system to get referred to one of their executives.
I can’t decide if I admire that approach or I’m irritated by it, but I’m going to play along – I need a recommendation and introduction link to the CEO of LinkedIn – Reid Hoffman – anybody in network that would like to help me get them to participate in this conversation?
