My LinkedIn Connections Illustrated

I know the basic theory about social networking, the “six degrees” of separation and so on. The reality still amazes me – unlike the “super connector hubs” on LinkedIn I have only 236 immediate, “level 1” connections, in 55 industries, but their connections and the connections of their connections connect me with over 2 million people in 147 industries.

(Note: somehow the image got corrupted so I’ve removed the wreckage.)

    Yes, I started to notice a few other favicons and decided to give it a burl.

    Glad you’ve joined LinkedIn. It’s opened lots of doors for me – especially by joining LinkedIn-related groups on Yahoo!, such as LinkedIn Bloggers.

  2. Hi Des,

    I notice your favicon is also the photo you dusted off from 2005, and reposted in the Publisher component. Nice! I like it, as you know.

    Took a look at LinkedIn, and joined, though I have no business nouse of any kind – yet! But contacts are essential to get the ball rolling, so thanks.
