What caught my eye was the coverage of Lotus Connections via Ed and Mac. Plus the positive piece on CIO.com:
"IBMs Lotus Connections looked, at minimum, a year or more ahead of SharePoint in its social computing capabilities out of the box."
Nice to see our peers in the industry with gracious remarks about Connections:
"Connections has a good-looking user interface that even Venky Veeraraghavan, program manager at SharePoint, admitted during his closing remarks are currently much better than SharePoint."
