SocialText

Socialtext — Enterprise Social Software: Here’s an attempt to marketize wikis and weblogs.

Socialtext Workspace adapts wikis and weblogs for enterprise productivity and scale.

I signed up for the trial, poked around a bit, and had a conversation with one of their sales reps. It’s a pretty straightforward wiki/blog hybrid.

I think this is great, but it’s almost too flexible for a lot of employees to wrap their minds around. Not enough structure is almost as bad as too much structure — given a blank sheet of paper, a lot of people don’t know where to start.
