First, I love the idea of SpeakerRate and want to bring it everywhere.
But before that, I need to get my profile validated. I've tried adding the validation link in both my profile summary and my LinkedIn websites field, but still can't get the validation to go through. Anything I'm doing wrong? http://www.linkedin.com/in/mattstempeck
Thanks for your note and sorry you are running into problems with the validation. I checked out your LinkedIn profile - where you able to add the validation link to your summary on your public profile? I didn't see it listed there?
Let me know if that doesn't work and we'll dig into your account and see if there is a bug in the works.
Thanks for letting us know.
