July 3 (Contribupendence Day) is almost over.  As promised, I wrote reviews for several colleagues on LinkedIn.  Most of the people I reviewed were those I worked with directly at my last employer.  I am currently on a project that allows me to work directly with a couple folks from my current employer

I became motivated enough that I ended up writing 7 reviews tonight (I had only promised 5) and I invited quite a few new people to connect with me on LinkedIn and Plaxo

I was surprised at the number of past and present colleagues that are using these networking sites.  My connections should at least double in the next few days.

Hopefully the people I recommended will be inspired to pick 5 people of their own and this thing will explode.

My plan is to write more recommendations in the coming weeks.  I have some that I've written but cannot make official until the recipient accepts my connection invitation. 

I won't copy my recommendations on this site but you are welcome to read them here.

Again thanks to Jeff for suggesting this.
