LinkedIn Public Offering

Here we go with another “Revenge of the Nerds” story…
LinkedIn, the social network for business connections or as I like to call it a boring work-related Facebook, will be going public this week. It all started out in 2002 when Reid Hoffman, an American entrepreneur had a dream and got some other dorks together in his living room. Now 9 years later he could net as much as 885 million dollars, making him very rich and a lot more attractive to me. LinkedIn is valued at 4 billion dollars and when I heard that I created a profile on LinkedIn and tried to connect with Reid Hoffman before some other gold diggin’ hussy could. Still waiting to hear back.
