Microsoft To Discuss New Enterprise Search & Social Networking Software

eWeek reports that Microsoft is going to announce an enterprise search application to compete with Google's enterprise search solution. And News.com reports that the next release of Microsoft's SharePoint will have "Knowledge Network." Knowledge Network is a feature that will "automatically builds profiles of employees and their areas of expertise." I didn't dig deeper yet, but it looks like the two items may be somewhat related. Hat tip, Gary Price.
