Dan Nye '88, CEO of the Internet professional networking site LinkedIn, appeared in a live interview on FoxBusiness.com (6/10/08). In the interview, filmed on Stanford University's Palo Alto, Calif., campus, Nye noted that he is a graduate of Hamilton College. Nye said LinkedIn currently has 23 million members, 1.2 million new members sign on each month and it is the largest professional network. "On LinkedIn people are exchanging knowledge, advice and opportunities and everybody is trying to help each other be the best they can be at what they do. The focus is on productivity," Nye explained "and giving the information and tools to be a more effective participant in this knowledge economy."

Nye visited Hamilton for Reunions '08 last weekend where he gave a lecture titled "Web 2.0: Professional Networking… What it is, Why it's useful, Where's it heading." He also lectured to students at Hamilton in February about social networking.
