It seems a very long time since I wrote about LinkedIn, the social networking site for professionals. It makes perfect sense to me that if you're going to network on line, you might as well network with people who you do business with as well.
Looks like Google vet Deep Nichar thinks it's a good idea as well, as he leaves one of the best start ups ever to join another one.
As VP Products at LinkedIn he will face a classic truth - there is a different between a good product and a good company. LinkedIn in my opinion is a good site and a good product. It will have to broaden its offering greatly to become a good company.
They have a shot a greatness.
