Smaller Indiana

Smaller_indiana_2What's the "right" number of social networks to join?  That's a question I've asked myself a few times over the past several months.  Using the phrase loosely, I'm already on LinkedIn and Facebook, so why would I need another social network?  Well, despite my best efforts, I'm not finding much of a local component to either of these services.  (Yes, I know all about the various Facebook groups but still, they don't really feel that local.)

Fortunately for me, my colleague Jason Marcuson recently discovered one with more of a local feel and sent me an invitation.  It's called Smaller Indiana and I joined it last week.  I'm still tweaking my profile and all, but I've already found a couple of interesting local networking opportunities on it after only a few days.  If you live in Indiana and are looking for a network with that local feel you ought to give this one a shot.

On a related note, this article in today's local paper talks about how the Indiana "brain drain" might be reversing and becoming more of a "brain gain."  I didn't grow up in this area but I can vouch for the fact that Indiana is a great place to raise a family and offers an excellent cost of living; we just need major league baseball and an NFL team that doesn't melt down after every playoff bye.
