LinkedIn networking: great or a waste of time?

LinkedIn is a web site that facilitates the organization, growth, and exploitation of your network of professional contacts. As their web site puts it:
LinkedIn is a networking tool that helps you discover inside connections to recommended job candidates, industry experts and business partners. Through LinkedIn, you can accelerate your business effectiveness and career success by leveraging the network you already have. LinkedIn makes it easy to receive and seek out opportunities through your extended network while protecting your privacy, your inbox and your existing professional relationships.

Let us know about your perception of LinkedIn and any successes (or failures) you may have had. Either comment here on the blog, or via email.

I've used LinkedIn for a little over a year, but so far I've only gotten a very marginal benefit from it. The best benefit is simply to focus attention on organizing your contacts and providing a focal point when you do need to do some networking.
