Linked In ... to what?

After splashing cold water on Twitter with a couple of cartoon satires, Current TV has turned its attention to another Web 2.0 phenomenon - LinkedIn.
LinkedIn, a social networking site for professionals, is a tougher target than microblogging service Twitter.
Like its Twitter satires, Current's LinkedIn satire tries to say "the emperor has no clothes." It challenges the usefulness of the site, including the belief that LinkedIn helps people find jobs.
I'm not sure about that claim either. But personally I use LinkedIn as a digital Rolodex to keep track of sources and their current jobs and titles.
