Yes they do use an awful lot. This is what we think of most people in buisness development or knowledge transfer.

This is professional network similar to linkedin but with a more focused purpouse of getting innovators, enterpreteneurs (?sorry for all misspelling) and scientists talking. The way I see it to generate more money a country needs create new markets. To create new markets you need new innovative buisness and to do that you need to discover/create new things that brings us to research. (But first you need a population that actually wants new and/or better things, but that is another matter)
But it is pretty new and needs people to ask questions and people share info.
