Collaborative Editing Love
If there’s one thing Google has pulled off really well it got to be Docs. Actually, they’ve done many things right, but this has to be one of their most useful day to day tools (except Search duh!). At the moment (obviously I’m not telling my classmates that I’m writing this right now) I’m working with two classmates on a project proposal. Since we’re still not sure about all the details we’re discussing many of them at the same time as we write. And… you guessed it, we’re able to do it all on Docs!
Now, why aren’t more organisations with people distributed across the globe (hint: #jamboree2011) using tools which are built for distributed groups of people? My next hack is going to be an “auto-link all my docs tagged Jamboree2011 to Sharepoint”-script.
Cheers Google! :)
