Why Enhanced Social Features from SharePoint 2010?

This community project was born to improve and extend Social features of SharePoint 2010. The idea is to make available to the community an extensible set of features, not the classic back box. There are already so many of them!

To realize this project I want to make sure that the incubation and evolution of the ideas come from needs reported by people. Make a social project involving the community. Feedback will be important and will be as indicators like how many people will want to participate actively (I mean not only developers but at all levels) but reading various posts around there are several requests, suggestions and ideas. I cannot do the social alone! :)
It would be interesting to set up an environment where people rate the features to achieve and those that get the most votes will be evaluated to technical lead to be implemented.
