收购又来了,这次是google和writely

March 10th, 2006

Google 官方 Blog 告诉大家一个消息:Writely.com,现在是我们的一部分了(part of Google)。

Writely.com 是一个在线的文字处理起。通过Writely可以完成文档的编写,多人协同,发布等。我的blog上很多文章就是在Writely下完成的。 Writely推出已经有一段时间了,但一直处于beta阶段。Writely会暂时停止接受注册,以方便google将其纳入自己的架构。blog中说 如果你试用Writely感兴趣,可以加入等待列表。

google应该会使用Writely来加强自己的Gmail,甚至对他们进行整合。可以相信google的收购,会为Writely用户带来更好的用户体验。但是从我个人来讲,有点失落。

来 来去去,始终逃不过google。昨天有人说自己的Gmail帐号被删除了。虽然不知道是出于什么样的原因,但是想想这事挺可怕的。如果哪天我的 Gmail帐号没了,那我会损失多少资料?如今Writely也归入google旗下,我的大堆文档也交付到了google的手中。

我愿意相信google不做恶的信条,但不愿意只能去乞求它遵守它的承诺。虽然至今我还能算半个Gfans,但是突然有点期待微软了。

由于GFW的原因,看google的blog有点不方便,所以把原文转过来

Writely so

Forthe last five months, I’ve been part of a Silicon Valley startup calledUpstartle, which makes Writely, a collaborative word processor thatruns in a web browser. Well, as of Monday, I’m happy to say that I, andthe rest of the Writely team, are now part of Google.

Theother night, I was talking to my husband about how nervous I was to bestarting work there. Truth be told, we’ve all been pretty overwhelmedfor the past few weeks. What could our little team possibly do that’sinnovative enough? And he said, “Hello? You already did it!” It’s true– everyone told us it was crazy to try and give people a way to accesstheir documents from anywhere — not to mention share documentsinstantly, or collaborate online within their browsers. But that’sexactly what we did. And since we launched the Writely beta in August2005, many thousands of people have registered, and all of them camethrough word of mouth (and blog).

To be clear, Writely is stillin beta, and it’s far from perfect. Upholding our great user experiencemeans everything to us, so we’re not accepting new registrations untilwe’ve moved Writely to Google’s software architecture. If you’reinterested in giving us a try, we hope you’ll get on the waitlist so we can let you know when you’ll be able to try out Writely.

    I go to see every day a few web sites and blogs
    to read content, except this web site offers quality based writing.
