More interesting ways community and collaboration solutions are used to delivery measurable ROIs for the organizations that field them:

Create your startup virtually. Ross Mayfield says, "Real Estate is the leading cause of death for startups," and leveraged a set of tools to let everyone at SocialText work from home - globally:
* Socialtext -- the building and garden
* IRC -- the hallway

* Skype -- the meeting rooms
* IM -- talking over the cubical
* VNC -- peeping over the cubical
* Our blogs -- the front porch
"The benefits go beyond cost... generally it is more productive."
