Groove 2.5.

Team blogging

The scenario shown in the screenshot uses Tim Knip’s Groove interop tool — a Radio UserLand add-in based on Groove Web Services — to create a genuinely new experience of team blogging. Until now, team blogging has meant that a group posts to a common weblog. This setup does that too, but it also does something I find much more powerful — it synchronizes the inputs to the collaborative process, as well as the output. In this case, the input is the combined set of RSS feeds subscribed to by the members of the shared space. Everyone knows that everyone else is seeing the same feeds. Discussion can grow around items in those feeds, and can take various forms: replies to the forum that receives the feeds, IM-style text chat, Roger Wilco-style voice chat. [Jon’s Radio]
