linkedIn i like it

I have not been sure about LinkedIn for a while now. People ask to connect to me and I always accept, i have been asked to answer short suveys using linked in and it is interesting that you can be linked to people from all around the world. Last month, i contacted on of my contacts and set up a meeting in Sydney. I felt brave but it worked a treat. I was able to schedule a coffee with a really useful contact at reasonably short notice and i am confident it will result in us both receiving business. Barack Obama is the only name i recognise in the top50 linkedIn people - so its not about celebrity or how famous you are. Linked, connection, will it make business easier or less personal?
