What strikes me from this review is that, for the most part, the notion of lifestreaming as a collaborative enterprise isn't on anyone's radar until very recently. Mostly, the implementations below are focused on providing an alternative to the desktop metaphor, sort of a time-ordered, searchable stack of documents that you might go through like a stack on your desk. But in an open-plan environment, people get to see each others' stacks and sometimes share them. That seems to be the thrust of the more recent Web 2.0-based lifestreaming and workstreaming trends.
