Google Buys Writely

I was so tired this morning I completely missed the news: "Writely is now part of Google!"

I remember first hearing about Writely through John over at Syntagma. John talked about Writely as part of the Web 2.0 and all that.

I never signed up for Writely because quite frankly I didn't see the point. But I think that having Google buy them is some serious news, for both the users and the entrepreneurs out there.

Good for them!

Seems almost everything Google touches turns into a for-profit venture. I would hate to see them start charging. I haven't looked at Writely, but I think the concept is a good one. Another good free online word processor is ThinkFree Office Write, part of the ThinkFree Office Online suite. It's a MS Word clone without all the fancy add-on crap that nobody ever uses. I use it a lot.

Hey, thanks, I've never heard of them.
Well, we'll just have to wait and see with Writely I guess and see if anything changes.
