Mzinga, a Boston-area start-up that is offering companies the tools to construct social networks, is launching today at the TechCrunch MeetUp on in Boston.

Erick Schonfeld has a report up on the new company on TechCrunch.  The start-up has already raised $17 million, Erick reports.

A few weeks ago, I interviewed Mzinga co-CEO Barry Libert, a longtime management consultant and co-author of a new book on social networks, titled: We are Smarter than Me.

Barry talks about the book and importance of creating social networks in the business world.  You can grab the file of my interview right here.
