OpenSocial and Enterprise 2.0

From Nicholas Carr:

"Plenty of people have commented on OpenSocial, but not many have focused on the possible implications for corporate computing. But given the fact that the OpenSocial consortium includes Oracle, Salesforce.com, LinkedIn, and Google itself, it’s clear that businesses are an important target of the initiative. Indeed, it’s not hard to imagine OpenSocial, or something like it, becoming the glue for "Enterprise 2.0," which has become (alas) the umbrella term for the use of web-based social software by companies."…

"Companies have faced a conundrum with Enterprise 2.0: they want the benefits of sharing, but they also need to maintain controls. OpenSocial points to one possible way out."
