LinkedIn Unplugged - Help For Lawyers On The Way?

A very interesting discussion between Stan Relihan and Patrick Crane, VP Marketing & Advertising at LinkedIn can be found in an audio blog post at LinkedIn Unplugged.

Stan and Patrick discuss the growth of LinkedIn, and how business gets done through connections, contacts and opportunities both locally and in other parts of the world.

Patrick provides a brief history and touches on the future of LinkedIn, particularly new LinkedIn group functions. Patrick and LinkedIn plan to use LinkedIn staff to help business development people in fields such as law harness the inherent power of this online environment.
