LinkedIn nukes contacts export option, makes you ask and wait

LinkedIn is a networking website for professionals, and as such it is expected you’ll develop new contacts while using the service. Users are able to manually import existing contacts from outside the service, as well, so that they're all collected together neatly in one place. For those occasions when you need a full list of your contacts (for importing them into another service, for example), you were able to export them as a CSV or VCF file from LinkedIn and go from there. For reasons that aren't clear, LinkedIn has decided to do away with that feature.

LinkedIn tightens grip on APIs, asks Devs to join program

LinkedIn might be able to find you work, but they’re not happy with the job Developers have done with their APIs. Starting today, Developers who want to use any LinkedIn APIs will have to become part of LinkedIn’s Developer Program, which has been ‘refocussed’ to provide a limited set of use cases and support.

It’s an interesting move which some will take issue with, but also provides some careful image management for LinkedIn.
