There is only one way never to fail. It is never to try something new. At the same time they never will succeed if they never try something new.

this actually sounds pretty good to me. An easy way to consolidate all the social networking services that are popping up everywhere. That's what I look forward to, organized and less hectic.

Currently is demoed as social network, but the real thing is the set of protocols used behind the service. It is position as converge technology between e-mail, IE, HTTP, FTP, web apps like Google Docs, wiki and etc. If this thing takes off the Internet will be different tomorrow. There are concerns that "Federation" protocol used is very complex and requires real paradigm shift. Also requires the web browsers to support the latest Internet standards. Big problem with current state of IE and Microsoft.

An interesting note, it will be requiring users of IE 6/7/8 to install the google chrome frame plugin to limit internal development time. Hard to say how this will affect corporate adoption of the collaboration tool.

That goes well with my mantra 'the best opportunities are the ones we make for ourselves' but additionally, we can learn as much from failure as we can from success.

[citation][nom]WheelsOfConfusion[/nom]Think of it as email, IM, wiki, and a collaborative office suite rolled into one application. Definitely possibilities in this.[/citation]
Agreed.
Too many social networking sites gets quite confusing...
Youtube, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, instant messengers, email... a all in one would makes things more convenient.
