Louis,
This is a great positioning. Question - you did not mention using private communities without Connections. How would they compare to Quickr?

@Yael - Great question and there is a lot regarding our specific social offerings I didn't mention. And your question is actually applicable to another recent blog on "When do I use Connections and when do I use Quickr?". The answer starts with another question (I know most people don't like that, but I love conversations). What is the purpose for the "private" gathering? Connections Communities and Quickr Team places can facilitate private gatherings as sharing. For me, one aspect might be consideration on the levels of privacy of the content. For instance, in Quickr team places, you can have private folders within your libraries, and you can have private rooms. If I wanted an entire "private" place for a group, I might use Connections communities. The right tool for the right job.

Louis, Love it.. great work!!! It's funny, because it all seems like common sense, yet, there's all these fears about what would happen in a social business (e.g. would it get misused? abused? etc.)

 
I'm going to think long and hard about cookies and milk and social business, wouldn't that be fun to include in future pitches to customers :)

Aha! Fortunately, I spent some time thinking about cookies and milk at the IBM Web 2.0 summit in 2008, and I sketched what I learned.
