O'Reilly Connections for tire kickers

I have been kicking the tires on O'Reilly Connections for a short bit now and it seems to be a little further ahead of the game as far as social networking sites go. This could be because it's more tech/geek centric and includes the ability to search for connections with specific technical skill sets (think of them as tags.. sort of). I also like the way that the rating and ranking of connections has been greatly downplayed here... it's no longer a big pissing match. The activity going on within one's network is also pretty manageable... say goodbye to annoying network member spam emails. If you're not already signed up with the beta, let me know and I'll pass you an invite it you are interested. If you are already signed up, well, seek me out or it may be a little bit of time before I find you on the network.
