Wallop: Microsoft's "uber-blog"?

About a year ago, Microsoft began in-house beta testing "Wallop" with about 100 employees.  This weekend, I was lucky enough to get an invite to Wallop from James Kendrick of JKOnTheRun.  (Thanks James!)  Wallop is both an experiment in social computing as well as blogging from what I can tell so far.  In Wallop, you create a social network of people; each person is a node in your web of information.  You can read their blogs, share pictures & music, send messages and more all in one combined interface.  No word on if this will actually become a Microsoft product, but for the meantime, I'm doing my civic duty and will take part in the experiment.  In the meantime, take a look at eWeek from for some screenshots.
