The Planet: One introduction at a time
Networks build through introductions and not all introductions are equal. They are distinguished by the quality of the introduction.
If people are not naturally connection-prone, we need to spend more time facilitating connection. The more we are a presence in the introduction, the more people gain from the trust each has with us.
Introductions are an art yet conceptually simple: it's all about helping people discover the value in each other.
How do social and economic networks the size of a planet grow? As Valdis says: one introduction at a time.
