LinkedIn: Ready, Set, Go!

This is a just a quick note to officially state that my first day at LinkedIn is tomorrow, May 29th.  I’ll be joining as Sr. Director of Product, working for the founder, Reid Hoffman.  I’m incredibly excited to join such a great team and to work on such a great product.

As with my previous role at eBay, I don’t plan on blogging about work here on Psychohistory – this is my personal blog.  However, I’ve always been open and honest about my background and my work, so this announcement is fair game.

If you aren’t familiar with the company, LinkedIn is a great new site that is based on the premise that the single most important asset of your professional career is your relationships with the people who you know and trust, and who know and trust you.  The site offers a suite of powerful tools that make it exceptionally easy to communicate & leverage your professional network in entirely new ways.  You can read more about the site and what it offers here.

Here are a few links you might find interesting, if you would like to learn more:

On a personal note, this means my 15-minute commute to San Jose has just become a 10-minute commute to Mountain View.  Such is life in Silicon Valley.

  3. All the best Adam. I was lucky to work with Gil Penchina who I think invested in the company early on. LinkedIn has great potential. Enjoy it!
