There is now a LinkedIn BOINC Group. You can join it by going to http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=678497. Non LinkedIn members will first be asked to join LinkedIn, a network of 25 million professionals.

LinkedIn is used by professionals to find resources, make sales and find jobs - and make contact with old friends and others with common interests. There are many "groups" that can be joined, and where members can contact other members. Some are work, profession or geography related, others are by interests. This linking proves useful in many ways - by finding, contacting and connecting with a person with specific skills by having something in common with them.

The BOINC group was created to gave a place to identify with BOINC in the LinkedIn environment; permit interested individuals to connect with each other; and to promote BOINC.

Its a great way to promote BOINC and spread the word to people who have not heard of it.

I just made your link clickable!

LinkedIn BOINC Group; http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=678497

Now all you have to do is tell everybody you know about the group, and people you don't know!

John.

Hi!

Welcome Aboard SEO Florida, and everyone else.

The LinkedIn BOINC Group have grown nicely and are now getting close to the 100 mark. My "feel" is that soon after that number we will be reaching "critical mass" and will start being noticed.

This group is for users of LinkedIn who are also users of BOINC to use this commonality to connect with each other; to identify themselves; and to publicize BOINC. If what you're after is more specific to BOINC, this forum, and the ones for the individual projects and teams is the place to which you should refer.

That being said, next week, LinkedIn is changing some of the ways members of groups can communicate with each other - sounds like it will be more like a forum. As we are a new group, I will wait a bit for our own dynamics to clarify (ie people sending me suggestions), the new software proves itself (there has been some recent problems with the software running LinkedIn Groups) plus my return from a WELL DESERVED break - without my laptop, and then canvas the members to see how they wish the group to evolve given the new capabilities.

David,

You said it, but are they really all crunching away? I've seen a SEO spamming at WCG, not 1 but 4 simultaneous posts in 4 forum sections, and for the heck went to look for anything SEO and found only 1. When I look at the sig link of SEO Florida I just see a company front page and when doing a oogle search for the single word "BOINC" at that site I get zilch.

http://www.google.com/search?as_q=BOINC&hl=nl&num=10&btnG=Google+search&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&lr=&cr=&as_ft=i&as_filetype=&as_qdr=all&as_occt=any&as_dt=i&as_sitesearch=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rapidvectorseo.com%2F&safe=images

So, cross promotion through social engineering is fine, but if it's a 1 way street, no thank you.

If I have missed finding the link I apologise in advance.

cheers
