A post on one of the game developer newsgroups suggested that I got myself LinkedIn. It’s only when you do something like this that you realise just how many contacts you have in the business.
If you’ve not seen it before it’s a bit like Friends Re-united only more tailored for working relationships.
It may also be a solution to a long term problem I’ve had with getting references. Due to the turbulent nature of this business, it’s not uncommon for everybody I’ve worked closely with at a company to have moved on. With this service I should be able to keep in touch with my colleagues wherever they end up.
If you know me, feel free to link up.
