Google Docs touts: Create, edit, and upload quickly. Access and edit from anywhere. Share changes in real time. It’s free.
Wow. No more hassles with emailing documents as attachments and worrying about document versions. Now you can work on a centralized document with all of your team members or clients.
What a great idea; leave it to Google to implement it. True, it’s another account with a username and password to remember (see my tips on picking passwords), but it might be worth your while if you work in teams.
I’ve tried it, and it works great. You can even upload existing spreadsheets or documents and store them securely. Invite others to log in and make updates to your documents together – in real time. All you need is internet access.
Isn’t the world wide web an interesting and useful place? This is just another example of how you can make the internet work for you.
