Informative post by IBM's +Luis Benitez about IBM Connections and OpenSocial applications, including a demo from IBM Partner http://www.appfusions.com

It may surprise you, but I'm actually NOT a huge fan of integrating updates and events from multiple systems into a single stream.  I actually prefer "silos" as I believe they provide far more context (and focus) then aggregating together information from multiple applications. Yes, I know all about "enabling a larger audience to discover and benefit from the information" vs. it being locked away in a core business system, I just don't think the reality meets the hype. I think the answer lies in the middle, where people can work in the tool of their choice, but the updates and information are accesible in both locations.  The demo video in the post appears to do a good job of this.
