LinkedIn Links In

I've mentioned Reid Hoffman in my blog more than once, usually noting that he was in stealth mode. No more.

Today, Reid went live with LinkedIn, his new business. It's a social networking service, not wholly dissimilar from services such as Friendster and Ryze. LinkedIn, however, is completely focused on professional networking, and relies exclusively on mediated personal introductions to bring people together.

LinkedIn went live to a limited group of testers last night, and then was opened up for new members earlier today. What surprised me was how polished it was right out of the gate. It's an impressive service. I think Reid has a future hit on his hands.
