LinkedIn Announced Their Application Platform

In today’s spirit of openness, LinkedIn has announced details on the opening of their platform. According to Reid Hoffman, the initial rollout will be focused on “productivity applications that range from gathering information that professionals around you are generating to enhancing your abilities to collaborate and communicate more effectively.” There are currently 9 live applications from Amazon, Box.net, Google, Huddle, Six Apart, SlideShare, Tripit, and WordPress.
