Is there microblogging software that companies can host internally? I think I remember Joel Spolsky mentioning that Fog Creek uses one. I can't remember what the name was or find what other software is out there. Does anyone have any ideas?

The software that Joel Spolsky mentioned in the Stack Overflow Podcast was Laconica which has become StatusNet.

If you want one that is just for your employees, but not hosted by you, look at Yammer. It's free for basic functionality but there are enterprise plans which add features.

This seems to be one: Status.net

Check out P2 -- based on WordPress and the automattic team seems to dig it (granted, they built it...). Check out buddyPress if you want to get even fancier and more "social".

Check out Incentive/features, built with activity streams, dashboards, wikis, blogs, and search. Host internally.
