Jason Putorti—the ex-lead designer for mint.com—is launching a "network of design and user experience professionals for lead
referrals to Internet startup companies. " It sounds like LinkedIn for desginers to me, although he is smartly leveraging your existing LinkedIn profile: You'll need one to sign up.
It's too soon to say how valuable this will be, but it can't hurt to sign up. right? Plus, I want to support him in his role as "Designer in Residence" at a VC. I think more VCs should have designers on the payroll.
