Inside new Sharepoint’s RSS, blogs, and wikis

Here’s the video interview I did with the Sharepoint team where they showed off their new RSS feeds, blogs, and wiki features (and something that Dave Winer first showed me as part of Manila, a feature called “edit this page”).

When I joined Microsoft three years ago I never thought I’d see this day. At the end of the video we thank Dave Winer and Ward Cunningham. 

The addition of these things into Sharepoint led David Berlind, in part, today to wonder if RSS is the new intranet protocol?

Keep in mind that Sharepoint is used by TONS of enterprises. This represents a sizeable shift in how enterprises will communicate internally.

  1. I think it was your blog that mentioned a web site that could create RSS feeds if there were none on the site you wanted to link to.

    Do you remember what site this was. I tried searching your blog under RSS but couldn’t find it.

  4. Sharepoint is a product you (Microsoft) should hang heads in shame over, but hey, I guess not if it has RSS and Wiki’isms. Wheeeeeee. Givemeabreak. The Enterprise you know not of.

  6. SP v3.0 looks a far cry from v2.0. I only hope it’s a lot easier to manage and all the Admin tasks are one place rather than being spread all over the shop :-)

    I maintain my own public portal and security wise is can be tricky to say the least

    That said, MS are on the right road and in general the corps and Apptix’s of this world will love it no doubt

  8. As I stated in my now infamous “5 Things Wrong With SharePoint” article over a year ago, the SharePoint product still needs a lot of clean up before adding additional half baked “features”. Almost all of my consulting work is on SharePoint, and while I applaud enhancements to the product, a video of happy talk Microsoft workers doesn’t translate into cleanly implementing SharePoint into enterprise environments.

  11. Scoble,

    I think many large companies will benefit greatly from Wiki’s alone. I’ve been in far too many IT depts where the instructions on how to do things are written on post it notes and outdated by years. Or just a jumble of word docs on a shared drive somewhere. It’d be great to have a central wiki that IT, HR, and other Depts can use as a way for people to find common solutions to problems and keep them up to date easily.
