LinkedItn - I had trouble with this the first time I tried it, but Groupwise was having difficulty that weekend and I don't know if that's the cause. It worked fine the following Monday, I got my confirmation email, and was then getting responses to those I have contacted. I also got generic emails from some past-parents who are involved in business. I found this to be bothersome, as I have had no contact in years, and no use for what they were offering. I think this is a wonderful tool for those who have something or service to sell, but don't immediately see a use for educators. We have an audience with different needs than those supported by LinkedIn.
