Plaxo is an online contact management system. They have not been known to spam thus far. It is a paid service. and openBC and a few others are networking sites. It works great if you are looking for contacts. Because it is a small world and 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon works with lots of people - like Jon Price :)

I keep getting offers to sign up for plaxo, linked in etc.

I've NEVER signed up for any. They seem too much like email harvesting or porn jerks to me.

Am I off base here? Some people that I highly respect have come across my desk with these types of systems. I just don't particularly care to put my email and personal contact info in the hands of any more people that I don't know if I can trust with it.

Are these companies legit? Do they promise that they will NEVER give or sell your data to anyone else? How do they make their money?

I'm having trouble trusting anyone over the internet these days....
