This is a shorty.
In the Lotusphere opening session, one of the items announced was a plan to create a new plugin for Lotus Notes (and for Lotus Connections) that is integrated with the LinkedIn business social networking platform.
This will allow folks using Notes and the LinkedIn plugin to see relevant information to the people in your emails in the Notes inbox.
For example, you could see the job title of the person, how many connections they had, where they're located, etc.
So, in short, it's a dynamic mashup of your LinkedIn profile information directly in the Lotus Notes inbox. How convenient will that be??
Check out this blog post from Jason Kincaid at TechCrunch, and you'll see how this type of integration worked in Outlook using a product from Xobni last year.
The LinkedIn plugin support for Lotus Notes is expected to be ready in the first half of this year.
