Gory details of social network software More good discussion on Joi's site about LinkedIn.

.....But to scale beyond the early adopters, especially with competition, these services have to do something valuable and create a good user experience. LinkedIn's core service -- trusted business introductions -- is useful but not, I think, a killer app......
[via Werblog]
I agree with Kevin, and would even add that it's not clear whether even LinkedIn offers any value at all.  I've got hundreds of connections through it, but have yet to receive or use the service for any form of business introduction  --- which is now 50% of my business.  It looks more like a "who's who" ego party than a useful service (at this point).
