Re: Anyone have any contacts at Ideo? #SNA-ONA-VNA

Hey Jack - thank you for offering to help. I've made an initial
connection at Ideo - will see where it goes. Trying to do some
informational interviewing there, as I am in the process of looking at
job options.

But... As always, it would be helpful to understand what you are
for before I make the introduction. We are all busy people, after
all. And
it isn't a very strong connection. (They've been guest lecturers in
my KM
class at Northwestern.) Another option is to check with your friends in
academia that are near Ideo -- they may be doing projects together.

As far as LinkedIn goes, I've nearly 500 connections and I have
attempted to
only link to people I've met in some way. I will totally admit that
are people in there that I don't really "know." And I actually
clean out my
connections from time-to-time. AND I try to forward along any requests
where I can help. I also have a huge contact list in my local
address book
-- as I am sure many other people do.

I also echo Dave Snowden's suggestion. Try using your other passive
networks: post a status on Facebook or a query on Twitter (to name
some of
the popular places).

I am looking for an introduction there. If anyone has any contacts
there, especially here in the Bay Area, and would be willing to make
an intro, please let me know.
