LinkedIn & Networking: Your Reputation Precedes You

Posted by WEST Board Member on Jun 19, 2018 2:13:10 PM

Once upon a time, there was a social network. The social network was rich with relationships. People were connected to their family, friends, and other people in their village. But technology didn’t stand still. Eventually they could connect to distant relationships by mail, then Pony Express, then telegraph, then the wireless, then the telephone, and then by email. Life was good. You could reach out to almost everyone you needed to.

Then, in late 2002 a colleague at work, Yvonne, sent an odd-looking invitation to me through this thing called LinkedIn.

 “What’s this for?” I asked Yvonne over by the coffee machine.
