I just discovered GoogleDocs, and immediately put it to use before the tutorial was even over. I paused it, and created an account and a document, and then went back and watched the rest of the tutorial. It’s so perfect for when you have to collaborate on anything, especially if it’s a large group. It takes all of the work out of updating a document. I can see our family using it to plan our Thanksgiving dinner, avoiding the chaos of e-mailing and backtracking through the e-mails to bring ourselves up to date on what we’re supposed to know/bring. Although that can get kinda fun.
Oh, and if anyone wants to collaborate on a novel with me, just say the word.
