2. Of a message through LinkedIn

January 28, 2012 at 2:45 PM | Posted in Connections | 2 Comments

A lady sent me a message through LinkedIn: she had been looking through a book and my name popped in her head. Her name struck me but I did not immediately place her. Then I remembered her very well: a happy person, very sharp, helpful. She worked at HP then and was a partner of ours at ASK. That was 17 years ago.

To say that LinkedIn connected us would be like saying that X-rays give us bones.

  1. I’m a 24 handicap user of LinkedIn but wouldn’t ever be able to make a new connection that way. I use it to reinforce connections, keep contact details, send the odd message,check out a new contact, or, as in your example, to revive old links.

    • I am mixed about Linkin. It has a value — we could communicate after lo these many years. But it is a “tool” for people to leveredge each other and that is not great.
