An Old-School Social Network – The Wednesday 10 – WSJ.com

An interesting article on WSJ.com:  An Old-School Social Network – The Wednesday 10 – WSJ.com.

Before there was Facebook, there was the Wednesday 10.

In 1957, as men in their late 20s, they began meeting—initially over breakfast, then over dinners held at the Sherry-Netherland Hotel or at the Harvard Club in midtown Manhattan. Few were born to means. Many were sons of immigrants. Most went on to become luminaries in their fields—presidents of television networks, partners at banks, editors of magazines.

Nothing beats building real relationships over time, as opposed to “facebook stalking” your friends and acquaintances… however, that news feed on facebook can be pretty helpful 😉
