At last…an integrated web/email/NNTP discussion platform!

Rob Howard’s recent post on the future of Community Server Forums (formerly ASP.NET Forums) ties in nicely with my main gripe about discussion lists. In Rob’s case his team are planning to implement NNTP access to their fora. Rob also reports plans for list-serv integration too. This is way cool and well overdue!

Whether NNTP is ultimately the future of web discussions I don’t know, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction, and something to keep the SharePoint boys on their toes.
