Social networking as a form of class discussion?

Recently wrote a post on the Global Learner blog around Purdue University's "Hotseat" program, a form of social networking as a means of class discussion. There is some very interesting potential here, if implemented correctly, for real-time student collaboration and opportunity to work with and assist in teaching one another. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this... anyone use anything like this?
