Free Tools for Online Collaboration -- Google Docs

At the PulseWire office, we use Google Docs a lot. It's a great way to share files without bogging down your inbox, and it allows you to access files from any (internet-enabled) computer without having to deal with messy e-mail attachments.

It may be just the thing your organization needs to make information sharing more efficient. And it is definitely a great way to collaborate with other PulseWire users off-site!

This youtube video is incredibly helpful in explaining what Google Docs can do:

COOL! I love this video!

I am going to set up my Google Docs right now.

I do not have MS Word on my computer... I think I just found a new project for myself: Find open source word processing software that Google Doc's supports :)

I figured it out.

I save my AbiWord as a .doc
