LinkedIn has added the ability to endorse specific skills, and it has been fun checking out friends and connections to see the skills/expertise they list. I'm being careful to only endorse people for skills I have some personal knowledge about. It is easy to endorse almost any of my connections for Lotus Notes or Lotus Domino, but I won't endorse anybody for Sharepoint unless I have dealt with them regarding Sharepoint, as I have with Duffbert for example.
I appreciate those of you who have endorsed my skills. I guess it remains to be seen how widely used (or abused) these endorsements are, and how useful they are to others in evaluating skills, but I'm glad to see the Lotus community embracing them.
