  1. Just a couple follow-up notes, from some questions I received today on LinkedIn Maps. The graphic created is not spatial in nature - the groupings are similar relationships, not where the contacts are located. So, most of my groupings are related to particular employers - with not as much overlap in between. It is interesting to see the connections that DO overlap - those are particularly well-connected and network-savvy folks.
    The colors are arbitrary - assigned by LI to try and group the connections.
