Is it God behind the scenes? Are we all just six degrees away from each other (hence the Kevin Bacon pic)? I am truly weirded out by the connections LinkedIn has found. One of the "people I may know" it pointed me to is a woman I met at a happy hour while on a job in another city. Um, HOW DOES IT KNOW THIS? We don't work in the same field, live in the same city, or anything. Another one is someone who also taught ESL where I do. Random. Does it have access to my emails? Does it spy on me at night while I'm sleeping. Seriously! I do enjoy the social networking sites, though--I've been in contact, even if peripherally, with people I hadn't spoken with for years!
