Linking up

Over the past couple days I’ve re-re-rediscovered LinkedIn, as a result of someone sending me an invitation. Very cool service– even if you weren’t going to use it for networking, its Outlook import/export functions and contact grab are more than worth the price of admission.

The multiple "re"s in the reintroduction are because my first couple experiences with LinkedIn must not have been terribly memorable — I had forgotten I’d ever signed up, but now that I’ve dug into it, I apparently have three(!) accounts under different email addresses. I’ve asked customer service to merge them.

If you’re a LinkedIn user who knows me, my (active) account is under mikeorren(at)pegasusnews(dot)com.
