Google Documents

While working on the “Green Space” project (which really isn’t about green space) we’ve been using Google Documents extensively to collaborate on press releases, agendas, and other random things. Its been AWESOME, despite the fact that the user interface for Google Docs really sucks, IMHO.

Ironically, before I actually used it, I couldn’t see why anyone would want to replace their desktop word processor for something like Google Docs. Now, I can see why to some extent — though, I can’t imagine using it for EVERYTHING. The best and most useful feature is the fact that multiple people can work on the same document at the same time, which is pretty freaking awesome for projects like ours.

    Dustin, only assholes use inline hover-ads in their text. When did you start doing that?

    Also, another great benefit of Google Docs is that the documents are available online. You don’t need to save to a memory stick or upload it anywhere in order to access it somewhere else.

    I have to say my perceptions regarding Google documents was the same as yours Dustin, until we used it for my marketing class. It made group work easier and saved disk space in the email accounts.
