There is no doubt that IBM's Lotus Connections is a powerful and elegant social software platform. It takes new hardware, careful planning, training, learning new software, oh yeah - and some money to make a Connections implementation successful. For those of you who won't be going down the Connections road anytime soon you have other options when it comes to reaping the benefits of "social bookmarking". Social bookmarking is one of the core pillars of Connections.

What if I told you that you can have social bookmarking up and running in your existing IBM Notes and Domino environment today. Installed, configured and ready to use all within 30 minutes. Interested? Read on.
