Something interesting just happened in my world.
I actually composed a document in a word processor online using Google Docs & Spreadsheet. (You can tell when technical people come up with product names!) Yes, Google Docs & Spreadsheet (formerly Writely) is a very useful Word and Excel-compatible wordprocessor and spreadsheet application which you can get to via your Gmail account or at docs.google.com
This way, I can write my documents and have them accesible online. Of course, I am completely screwed should Google goes out of business, or if their server crashes, or I eat too much sugar and I forget my password.
Still, the prospects of doing everything online in a Web browser is just too exciting for me. It is really that great!
The Office guys at Microsoft must be pissing in their pants right now.
