Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think integrating Stack Overflow with LinkedIn by showing Stack Overflow application in the LinkedIn profile will help increase the attractiveness of a profile.

By just showing Stack Overflow reputation points in the LinkedIn profile it would add value to the profile/resume. For a recruiter this number will mean one more parameter to shortlist, as Stack Overflow reputation point tells about how much a person's solutions, answers and thinking is appreciated by others, his/her technical knowledge and his/her ability to explain, communicate, and convince.

Is there an application already or in development? I did look around a little bit and didn't see any open SDK to develop such application on my own, though I see LinkedIn provide some APIs. Is there something in the pipeline?

You can write your own app and gain extra kudos on your linkedIn by saying hey, look, here is a linkedin app that I wrote that pulls the reputation from StackOverflow and here is my rep of 1. For more info go to stackapps.com – Igor Zevaka Jul 14 '10 at 3:51
