And it's still just a pilot. Enterprise collaboration with blogs and wikis, 3/25/05 Because BlogCentral is searchable and because you can easily see the latest postings across BlogCentral as a whole, it can help you discover colleagues throughout the company with interests similar to your own, Gruen says.
