Antisocial networking

I joined Orkut many moons ago. I hat­ed it. It was bor­ing, va­pid, and use­less. That was my whole ex­pe­ri­ence in so­cial net­work­ing sites [1].

A few days ago I was in­vit­ed to LinkedIn. Since I had heard some good things about how it was use­ful and let you net­work your con­tacts and leads to busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties, I took care to fill in some data, start some links.

So far... if the Ques­tions page (help­ful­ly la­belled An­swer­s, of course) is a rep­re­sen­ta­tive sam­ple of the av­er­age LinkedIn fel­low...

Here are a few ex­am­ples (In the tech­nol­o­gy area):

Does any­one has a doc named stau­to.pdf (Se­curID API (SOFT­ID 2.0)) ?

I can make you one if you want it!

Has any­one else re­cent­ly lost Sprint wire­less cov­er­age? Sud­den­ly, our Sprint Mo­to-Q does­n't get cov­er­age at home.


Sure, there are some that are in­ter­est­ing, even if most of those are just too vague or lo­cale-spe­cif­ic or both (What's the fu­ture of dig­i­tal me­dia in In­di­a?)

I did find a few peo­ple I had lost track of, and am sur­prised it keeps on sug­gest­ing I know two peo­ple I ac­tu­al­ly do know but am not in­ter­est­ed in re-find­ing.

But, all things con­sid­ered: it is look­ing like a very slight­ly less use­less Orkut.

Is it a prob­lem with me, or would I find somthing like Ohloh more in­ter­est­ing?
