A new professional social network for tech pros

I’m really intrigued by this site. It has a terrific design, which immediately puts it ahead of LinkedIn. What’s particularly interesting though are the different ways to become engaged. The $10,000/month prize money for top content is a great example of this. Really looking forward to seeing where this site goes.

Feel free to connect with me there: http://tech.pro/atcrawford.
