We the Connected People

I feel LinkedIn is almost a democratic innovation, because it links people and, as a result, gives them information, opportunity and power.

A revised version of the Constitution might read like this: "We the Connected People..."

Indeed, the more we use LinkedIn, the more we realize that the adage "information is power" should perhaps be updated to "people is power."

People is power, because only people can make decisions. Only people can influence decisions. And only people can recommend other people.
