Businessweek wrote an article discussing a new potential business model. Creating a myspace.com style site for businesses.
Do you use myspace.com? Would you use a new site that was like myspace but for businesses?
Here's an example of how the site works: Let's say a salesperson at company A wants to contact the chief information officer at company B. The suitor could make a cold call, but that's not a very good way to get through the front door. Visible Path would let the salesperson seek a colleague or business associate who has a connection to the CIO. He or she may find multiple "paths," in fact. The site also will compile publicly available research on the CIO, tapping resources such as Google or Hoovers.
