It is great to hear that you are using LinkedIn more. LinkedIn likes to hear what people have to say about the program. By the way, did you know that networking expert Jan Vermeiren has written a book about LinkedIn? It is called "How to REALLY use LinkedIn" (see: http://www.how-to-really-use-l...) He also gives away a free light version and access to webinars.
