From BoingBoing: Free online word processor from Google

Google launches free, kick-ass word-processor

Google has re-lauched Writely, the online word-processor they recently bought, in public beta. Writely does everything most things
Word does, for free -- and saves its output as PDFs and even RSS feeds
(subscribe to a word-processor doc!). It features collaborative editing
-- multiple editors on the same doc at once -- and can be used as the
editor for writing your blog, saving out to a post instead of a file on
your machine. This is a great-looking program for people who have
always-on Internet, and for so long as you don't worry about the NSA
demanding that Google turn over its Writely files as part of some
"security" procedure. Also: if I were a Google China user, I'd have
some doubts about this, given that Google has shown that when it comes
to China, keeping the government happy is more important than
delivering the best product it can.
