I love SharePoint, it’s easy to customize, the lists are flexible, it integrates directly into office (especially the calendars into Outlook) but I had no idea is was this community friendly. Take a look at the “Community Kit for SharePoint” on the http://www.codeplex.com site. It’s a site template you add to SharePoint to give you community functionality on top of the SharePoint infrastructure. Super Cool!
Check out this post by Tim Heuer about some of the latest functionality just added to the http://maps.live.com This stuff is absolutely amazing, you have the ability to record a 3D tour of a saved collection and save it as a WMV file. He demonstrated a simple collection as well as posted it to Silverlight Streaming using a custom Encoder template.
