The concept of a "business" oriented "social network" has bothered many. Others might embrace the concept to find contacts in their industry, within their customers etc but not participate in discussions. A recent posting in the Cradle group on LinkedIn is a good example of how sharing thoughts and experiences on projects can be very helpful. "Colourful Views?" started as a brief mention of how using color (or colour) can help highlight areas of interest in charts and reports. A string of comments followed from users, distributors and 3SL support exposing a very helpful method others had not thought of prior.
Join the group and check out the posting. Add your own post to share your questions or successes and see what collaboration can do. Isn't that what Cradle is all about anyway?
