Salesforce.com Keeps Up the Chatter

Cloud CRM pioneer Salesforce.com -- which, incidentally, is doing pretty well financially -- introduced this week a Facebook-like corporate app called Chatter. Naturally, this got us to thinking of the old "Simpsons" episode in which Bart and Lisa have a hockey rivalry (here's a funny scene from it) and Apu tells a forlorn Milhouse to "keep up the chatter!" (True "Simpsons" nerds can find the reference buried somewhere here.)

Anyway, Facebook for work? Isn't that called LinkedIn, and isn't everybody in Sweden already a member of it or something like that? We'll see what Salesforce.com, an innovative company, can do with this thing.
