Lotus GM Mike Rhodin was interviewed by Express Computer... a couple of good quotes:

There is a new world emerging in the collaboration market, one that is born on the Web. A lot of Web 2.0 technologies are based on the idea of collaboration. We have delivered blogging support through our workplace products. We have partners that have both wikis and blogs for Notes and Domino in the market. We are going to see more things like wikis and blogs that will make it easier for ISVs and partners to build new solutions based on emerging technologies.
and on competition....
We think there is a major marketing push from Microsoft against Lotus Notes, which is just competitive marketing. I think Microsoft has been declaring the death of Lotus Notes for the last four years. It is a competitive marketplace and the two major competitors are going to compete vigorously. We believe that we have a better value proposition and provide the most scalable and secure messaging solution in the market--and that is what we are going to focus on. Competition is fun, but the real test lies in giving value to the customer.
