It would be valuable for Microsoft to continue down this path of providing well-defined and public interfaces (as opposed to vendor point-to-point deals) so that other blog and wiki vendors could integrate with the platform.

That said, the social computing capabilities within MOSS 2007 out-of-the-box are not comparable with best of breed tools from specialized vendors. Previously, Microsoft had integrated with Socialtext as well. Virtually every client I talk to is looking at MOSS as some level.

MOSS for records. in MOSS, can "Save As" and use My Site, cross site collections. Adds email management to SharePoint, via seamless integration with Outlook. Debbie Ireland (from EnvisionIT ) and Cameron Dwyer (from Scinaptic ) talked about using SharePoint for document management, along with two third-party products. Signs of maturity with SharePoint: - minimal structure. a bit of dabbling, corporate documents; some metadata, few or no content types, published content.

NewsGator Acquires Tomoye

In June 2008, I published a blog post Microsoft's Maturing Social Computing "EGO" , that outlined different ways that vendors could integrate with MOSS 2007 to provide social computing capabilities. Overall - a pragmatic move by NewsGator and Tomoye but we should wait and see how an integrated solution pans out and some actually client implementations before hailing things as being successful.

The 2007 release was arguably the first concerted effort to deliver an integrated platform, adding additional components along the way. MOSS 2007 exacerbated the existing problem. MOSS 2007 forced organizations to regain control and was the "wake-up call" to the governance problem that organizations had created for themselves.

Response to "SharePoint 2007: Gateway Drug to Enterprise Social Tools"

Michael Sampson - Currents

With SharePoint not giving everything that’s needed in the 7 Pillars framework above, you have to buy in and integrate in, other Microsoft and third-party products to get closer to a pass in other areas. A couple of other points: - MOSS stands for “Microsoft Office SharePoint Server”, not “Microsoft Office Online” - which I think is “MOS” for Microsoft Online Services.

Year-End Thoughts On Enterprise 2.0 Social Software (Part 3)

Collaborative Thinking

However, in general, vendors will have to integrate with SharePoint 2010 at some level (e.g., IBM squandered (my opinion) the time between MOSS 2007 and SP2010 to do the type of broad and deep integration with SharePoint that would have given it a beach head to compete when SP2010 does come out.

Slowing Down, Making Space

I tell myself 5 stories, shown in the upper left box, that I believe to be true stories (to the extent any 'story' can be 'true'), that I don't think I can significantly change, and which evoke in me the flurry of what Richard Moss calls "tamed" emotions in the box connected to my box of stories (they are called "tamed" because one can learn to live with them, in contrast to the ones that eat you alive). They, too, are an integral part of who I am. BLOG Slow Down and Make Space.

If CodePlex is not your "cup of tea" then you can look for third-party vendors that have integrated their social software tools with SharePoint. These vendors are investing a lot of time, money and resources to deliver a high-level of integration. RSS feeds in SharePoint are a good example of a “platform feature” – they’re everywhere, and they’re seamlessly integrated.

Resting in the feminine

Chris Corrigan

I felt truly in that moment the integration of masculine and feminine: that one co-creates the other. I am a poor student of the feminine, of the integration between the masculine and the feminine. The transformation that happened at Beyond Sustainability was one of seeing anew, and is one that requires much time to properly understand, integrate and embody.

Interesting - but I remain quite skeptical - especially regarding "MOSS 2007 as your default option for enabling and managing social networks for business use" But this document is the best effort Ive seen to-date to represent the capabilities that do exist into a social networking storyline. Excerpted below are key portions of the white paper, which I hope will get you to think about MOSS 2007 as your default option for enabling and managing social networks for business use.
