Keep your network chunky
David Weinberger on Culture

Christopher Allen, at Life with Alacrity points out that as your online social network gets larger - as you add contacts to LinkedIn or Spoke - it can actually decrease in value. Since this problem is not new with the online world, he looks at how politicians, salespeople, doctors and others deal with it, finding cultural and technological strategies.

My own strategy is the same online as it is offline: Nod pleasantly and try to avoid getting yourself into a conversational corner where it becomes obvious that you don't actually remember the person's name.
