EtherPad: Real-time Collaborative Text Editing

Saturday, February 28th, 2009
Today's productivity tip has nothing to do with Lotus Notes and everything to do with an elegant collaboration application.  EtherPad is a real-time collaborative text editor. It lets multiple work on the same text simultaneously. I recently participated in a knowledge management Peer Assist and we used EtherPad to collect our ideas in real time on a single page.

It worked.

EtherPad: Real-time Collaborative Text Editing

Tools like this are incredibly helpful. I've had success using Google docs for real time sharing and collaboration where multiple people are making edits to a doc or spreadsheet. OF course the caveat there is all participants need a Google account.
