I can see using this in an internal network, but I'm not sure that two way posting would be as effective since you'd lose any comments between the sites (and my current buggaboo with sharing content between teams at work has been how to retain comments and edits so you only have ONE place to update the ding dang stuff and not MORE).
If posts are two-way, the need for comments reduces. Since one post 
could be in reply to another post. Though details would need to be 
worked out with this. This would also mean that in order to reply two 
people would need to be subscribed to each other, and also solving the 
problem of bots spamming comments.

I don't think an excerpt is enough, because then you're required to go 
to the other post to view it in full, and not function like a feed 
reader. While it could be a good option, in addition.
