LinkedIn to open up to developers

I talked to LinkedIn founder and Chairman Reid Hoffman on Friday at the Supernova 2007 conference about Facebook's rapid growth and potential incursion into his territory. He told me that over next 9 months LinkedIn would deliver APIs for developers, ostensibly to make it more of a platform, like Facebook, and create a way for users who spend more time socially in Facebook to get LlinkedIn notifications.
