A new form of friendly spam. Searching for old friends and co-workers/cow-workers on professional networking sites like linkedin, and then sending them invites to join your network.
It’s kind of fun, reminiscing over people you worked with ages ago you wanted to have an excuse to get in contact with again. Especially when you take the boilerplate “introduction” email the systems give you and re-write it to be funny.
Well, I thought it was funny anyway. Will pimp my “linkedinlisting” later, once I have a big enough score on my list.
