    Hi Martin. Really good post on how you have navigated through your connections on InMaps. I’ve been thinking that printing it out on a big sheet of paper would be the best way to work (like DJ Patil, the inventor does here – ) – but you’ve convinced me that taking time and clicking on the links on-screen is real added value.

    >>”How often will I repeat this exercise? Well, maybe once per 3-6 months, I must admit, it’s not something I’ll use every day….”

    Building a strong, supportive Personal Network is a strategic process (not the tactical mush of those networking events). You have got it right, the overview of the “map” to check where you are is probably a 2-4 times a year review.

    Sorry – forgot to paste the link to InMaps Inventor DJ Patil showing his LI map on paper: P

    Thank you Phil!

    I’ll go through it again in the coming days, after I viewed that vid – the great thing is that clicking on someone will reveal all his or her ties with others in your network, highlighting those over the rest, and disabling mouse-over for the rest as well; so that’s truly an exercise you have to do and can’t be done on paper
