In this article, IBM tries to turn your workspace into MySpace, at the Register we hear of the plans afoot from IBM to “socialize” Lotus Notes.
To be honest, I haven’t used Lotus Notes
ever for a very long time, but doesn’t it already have all the features of MySpace already? Notes has (as far as I can remember) everything you’d ever want from an online shared space… profiles, discussion, media, comments, messages etc. and even then… everybody I’ve ever met who uses it… hates it… really bloody hates it. I don’t think MySpace succeeded because of the features, there were (and still are) better Social Software tools out there.
So I wonder, how are a big old boring company like IBM going to go about adding likeability to Lotus Notes? I don’t think they can, can they?
