As we all know, Writely has been accquired by Google, and the interface looks a little different, but I noticed that if you look on the writely.com homepage, it says:
The Web Word Processor
...that's now part of Google.
The word Google has a link to the Writely blog, where they talk all about their plan to Google-ize Writely, and it also includes the Top 10 Reasons that the change is good:
"10. Writely is like a caterpillar that we hope to make into a beautiful butterfly at Google!
9. We love Google's philosophy and values -- especially "Focus on the user."
8. We're as passionate as Google is about respecting users' privacy.
7. Many of our users are already Google fans using other Google services.
6. Being at Google will help us do more great things faster.
5. Some people didn't feel comfortable trusting a tiny startup with their documents...and we're no longer a tiny startup.
4. We like lava lamps and they're pretty much standard decor at Google.
3. Three words: Free Googleplex lunches
2. As fun as it's been to launch a popular, global, 24x7 Web service, it'll be nice to take a vacation once in a while!
...and the number one reason???
1. We'll be able to bring Writely to not just thousands but millions of users -- the more, the merrier :-)"
Blossom into a beautiful butterfly. I think that Google could be creating an online OS.
