Hi!

I just search for 'Mathematica' in LinkedIn Skills (beta) and Stephen Wolfram came top in the professionals list. Then I searched for 'Sage' and did hope Prof. Stein would come up in the Professionals list. But, it didn't and none of the developers from sage-devel did. Why?

We don't use LinkedIn. What's it good for? I had an account for
years, but it never resulted in anything except annoying emails, so I
canceled it recently.

Ok, I understand. Since it claims to be a professional network I thought it would be helpful to have a profile. :P

Hmm... I closed my Facebook for the same reason. Seems LinkedIn isn't any different. Sad.

Though on the plus side, on Facebook you can become a fan of Sage!
