    What an excellent article. I have recently had a bit of a rant against “social collaboration” for the very same reasons – how exactly can you collaborate without social interaction (given that to have a social interaction does not mean face to face) ?

    I recently wrote about a similar topic, in the context of my own area of interest over at CMS Wire: http://www.cmswire.com/cms/enterprise-cms/the-semantics-of-content-management-what-we-mean-and-how-we-say-it-010826.php

    Language is indeed all important, and we do need a better term. I am not going to suggest any though, I will await the outcome of the first meeting of your new group.
