In my recent post which discussed the perils of blogging I linked to Ray Ozzie’s Weblog . This week, I was interested to read that Ray Ozzie was actually the creator of Lotus Notes and that his company, Groove Networks is to be acquired by Microsoft (who have long since been investors in the firm) and integrated into Microsoft’s Information Worker unit.

The Windows IT Pro magazine network WinInfo Daily Update reports that the peer-to-peer and authentication technologies from Groove’s collaboration products will be integrated into the next generation of Windows, (codenamed Longhorn).

As for Ray Ozzie, he will become one of Microsoft’s chief technology officers, reporting directly to Bill Gates.
