Groove is a platform for web collaboration. It is not free, but it is geared towards open standards and peer-to-peer connections. Ray Ozzie runs the company, and he's also the guy who created Lotus Notes. Groove is now opening up to access through web services. Jon Udell has a good analysis here. The term "Web Services" refers to protocols (XML-RPC,SOAP,WSDL) that are used for letting programs talk to each other over the web. That is a big thing right now. If more programs are making their functionality available from afar in standardized way, there will be so many more ways you can get what you want, the way you want it.
