I repeat, I am a big fan and user of LinkedIn.
I found this link from Guy's blog advertised on LinkedIn.
Some great suggestion for using LinkedIn most of which I had never known or considered. (Which explains why Guy is really successful and I am usually a "ride along").
I might add though, it is worthwhile to include your email address in your profile. LinkedIn limits the ability to make contact with other LinkedIn users unless you know their email address or have a direct network contact.
"But Jack, what about spam!?" - umm it's 2007. Most everyone and every ISP has spam filters now. My work email does, GMail does, Yahoo does. If you have not updated your email client since 1996, you deserve all the Nigerian bank scams you get.
I have not started including my LinkedIn button on my blog or other websites yet like everyone is doing now. My bad I guess.
