NYTimes article about SPM and "Strength of Weak Ties", 3/9/03

Hi everyone,

This is my first posting.  I joined the listserve a few weeks ago.  I am a
practitioner not an academic.

My organization, Software Product Marketing (SPM) eGroup is experimenting
with various internet-based social networking practices and software.

We were featured today in the Jobs section of the NYTimes
[NYTimes article "A Little Help From Friends of Friends", March 9, 2003 By
or go to our website to avoid the registration process

If you are interested in  learning more about how we implemented "The
Strength of Weak Ties" on SPM and our plans for increasing participation by
adding identity/reputation there is additional relevant information in the
"About" and "Strength of Weak Ties" sections.

Any comments, ideas, suggestions very much welcomed.
