Testing Writely

August 28, 2006

I’m testing Google’s Writely online word processor. It’s not bad, haven’t played with it enough to say either way. I have a strong suspicion that my work will probably block this through their filters, because of the minute possibility of someone using this to violate privacy.

It’s neat enough, that I can post to a blog from it *and* have spell check. This part is very very cool. Between Writely, Gmail , Google Spreadsheets , Calendar and Google Talk . They have a nice little online office package. Throw in Blogger and you have most of what Microsoft has been offering most companies for years: Exchange, MS Office and Sharepoint now have decent, free, and online competitors.

Talk about a revelation this morning. Look through Google’s offerings and see how close they are to the “Web OS “.
