Microsoft buys Groove Networks

Wow! Big news today is that the Redmond Behemoth has purchased Groove Networks and made Ray Ozzie, the inventor of the splendid Lotus Notes, their new Chief Technology Officer.

It will be interesting to see if MS can integrate Groove's products into it's collaboration offerings. At least now they have a guy at the top who understands what collaboration really is (hint: It's all about people working together effectively).

Interesting times. Groove hasn't ever taken off, but watch it suddenly start appearing left, right, and centre now it has a Microsoft logo. Doesn't the Microsoft collaboration offering now look like a bit of a Frankenstein's monster... all those spare parts from half-dead entities.
