Way to go Lotus Connections

Mike Gotta, posted a good summary of the SharePoint vs. Connections battle going down at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference this week. It's an exciting event and I wish I could have been there for it! The stakes are high as customers of all sizes start to look at social software offerings from IBM, Microsoft and others.

These articles provide a good background of what the two biggest in the software industry are providing:
Understanding Lotus Connections, IBM's Version of Web 2.0 For The Enterprise
Understanding Microsoft SharePoint in a Web 2.0 World

Lawrence Liu's (Microsoft's SharePoint Senior Technical Product Manager), Tweet on how the face-off went is a good concession and shows that we are headed in the right direction.
