According to an email that arrived today, Connected launched last March with only 3,000 beta members.
“One year later, the professional network for lawyers has grown to nearly 30,000 members – including members from more than half of the Fortune 500, lawyers from 98 of the Am Law 100, and 10 Alliance Partners from prominent legal organizations and associations. To date, almost 700 active groups have formed within the community, where members collaborate and share ideas on a number of legal issues, and 2,500 members have participated in community-hosted webinars.”
Attaway, Connected! I have mentioned you from early on and host a forum on it (See my post of March 31, 2009: suggestions for in-house lawyers regarding online networks; and June 9, 2009: data from a survey related to Connected.).
