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.
