Blog buzz

Blog buzz is in full swing. Microsoft announced their publishing service called MSN Spaces. I took a quick test drive and found the features basic and complete for lot of bloggers out there.

Entry of Microsoft in this space is a big deal. It confirms blogging as another means of communication tool along with email and chat. Next logical step is to see its  inclusion in the enterprise application context. It plays naturally into the CRM and Knowledge management domains. You will see lot of software companies announcing "RSS Support" and "Journaling" capability in their softwares very soon. I doubt enterprise space will run with the word blog in their usage. It has to be more serious sounding for people to accept (it may sound crazy but I have seen execs cringing at the sound of shopping cart, they prefer orders !)

Though blog word made it to the Webster. Official definition -

Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer

Emphasis on hyperlinks is key.
