Linked out

February 7, 2010

Holy Moly!

I finally gave in and joined Linked In yesterday. A screen came up asking me whether I wanted to “link” with all the friends in my address book who already have Linked In accounts. I said ‘sure, what the hell’ and it told me exactly how many that would be — and it was a large number. “Sure what the hell” I confirmed again.

Over the past two days I have received scads of emails from old friends and acquaintances, many from whom I have not heard for many years.

This very cool technology has afforded me little “hellos” from all my friends who agreed to be “linked” to me. And they heard from ME for the first time in a long time.

I know: that’s a terrifying thought to some; but little hellos are really OK.
