I know it sounds odd that a LIMS/ELN/SDMS/LES blog would give a workaround to software that is not of that type of software. However, so many of use use LinkedIn to keep in-touch or drive business that I frequently seem to be coming across people having the same problem I’m having with responding to messages. With that said, I found a workaround and willing to share what I have.

Meanwhile, people kept endorsing me and I continued to get further behind, making it yet easier to procrastinate getting up-to-date. It’s terrible to admit that so many people endorsed me and I didn’t spend the time to endorse … Read moreLinkedIn Endorsements – Updated

Big Numbers My hit rate is really high in my … Read moreMore Comments on the LinkedIn LIMS/LI Group Handover
To promote it and to explain its purpose, I’ve been writing about the LinkedIn group I started for Laboratory Informatics people, such as those in LIMS, ELN, SDMS, LIS, CDS, and others.
