I was contemplating Mr Lepofsky’s move to SocialText, and started investigating the organisation, which led to a few discoveries.  First – There is an interesting initiative underway between IBM and SocialText to integrate the SocialText Workspace with the Lotus Connections Product.

I will be trying the 14 day trial of SocialText Workspace to better understand the synergies here.

On the page of SocialText’s website that described the collaboration with IBM, there is a reference to Gartner’s 2007 Magic Quadrant Report on Social Computing and Collaboration, which is a good read. Here’s the actual Magic Quadrant Diagram.

I also noticed an article in today’s ComputerWorld (online) about Social Networking titled “Enterprises the battleground for social networking” also an interesting read, with an interesting comment about how IBM employees have more registered users of LinkedIn than Connections. There is an obvious dynamic in that fact, but noteworthy anyway.
