This is just a quick entry to provide a kind of proof-of-concept, when using Writely, a collaborative online wordprocessor from Google. No doubt when I publish this to my blog there’s going to be a Writely icon next to it just to make certain anyone knows about it. The thing that interests me most is the possibility of a few of us all working on the same document from various parts of the world. Or indeed from just down the street. I guess we’re all used to the concept of a Wiki now, but wouldn’t this be an excellent tool for creating a FAQ?
Update 2023: This is what would ultimately go on to become Google Docs. Which remains browser based, and which had contributed to my intense dislike of browser based apps. Which absolutely crawl along in comparison to native ones.
Since this current blog transferred all my old material from Right Brain Rumblings this current blog came from a vastly different workflow.
