I just got a note from Reid Hoffman, co-founder and chair of linkedin, reporting that they’ve hit 100 million users!!! and thanking me for being one of the 1st million. In the spirit of last week’s conversation, I was amongst the pragmatics.

What Reid doesn’t know is that I signed up earlier, couldn’t get value and deleted my account a few years later signed back in again.

Now, I visit the site often. every now and then, if I have an hour of leisure I stroll around the questions and see if I can answer. I have formed 2 groups, I’m on few others, I ask questions and am always amazed at the generosity and candor of people who respond.

Through linked in, I’ve found suppliers ranging from business consultants to relocation agents, I’ve reconnected with those I’ve lost contact with and I’ve made friends, yes, friends.

Also, in 2009, I created a mini video on linked in as part of a series of Silicon businesses.

It is an amazing company, thanks Reid and team for creating it, for riding along and thanks for that personal touch of the email.

Much appreciated,

Alicia
