For those of us, and that's most of us, who spend a lot of time on the go, you can take LinkedIn with you. LinkedIn can be used anywhere, if you have a mobile device with web capabilities via LinkedIn Mobile. When you're traveling, you can keep up on updates within your network, research people as you meet them, and add new contacts to your network.
LinkedIn Mobile features include searching and viewing profiles, inviting new connections, actionable network updates i.e. forwarding a job posting, and one on one messaging with your contacts. I use the messaging component of LinkedIn all the time - it saves having to send an email - and that will be even more useful doing it from my phone. LinkedIn Mobile optimized for iPhone and is also available for Android and any other Internet enabled phone.
And, by the way, if you're not a LinkedIn user yet, you should be. It's an excellent tool for job searching and career building. Take a look at how LinkedIn can help with your job search and how your LinkedIn profile can be used as an online resume.
