Another Social Center Demo

It used to be that people could tell how busy I was by how long my hair got between haircuts.  Now you can by how long I go between blog posts.  The good news is that I've been very busy this past few months, and at least from where I'm standing, it looks like the economy is improving and enterprises are buying again.  We've already beat our sales goal for the quarter and now we're trying how much we can beat it by the end of the month - that's a good feeling.

I've recorded another demo of our Social Center concept software, and we're starting to roll it out to more users inside Gold Systems.  Internally it's like "Twitter for the enterprise" in that as people change their presence and notes I can see those changes appear in the order they happen.  Already I'm feeling better connected to the people I follow.  Sometimes it is work related but not always - for instance I found out that one of the people I'm working with is having twins, which is pretty appropriate for her to announce it that way, because she introduced me to her fiance a few years ago using Microsoft OCS video conferencing.

You can watch the demo here - www.youtube.com/goldsys  If you are interested in this sort of thing, Opus Research also just wrote a piece about what we're doing and that's available on the Gold Systems blog here - http://www.goldsys.com/blog/news/gold-systems-makes-ocs-more-social
