I've been playing with Etherpad, as a Google docs alternative (I don't have a Google account).me poking at the thing
- feel free to poke the thing, you can set your name and text colour to your preference.
It requires no account or login, and it looks like an 'anyone with the link' situation (though you can set shares to read only). I figure make the url suitably complicated and keysmashy and no one will accidentally stumble across it.
Looks like it's designed for collaboration, but I'm seeing possibilities in terms of being able to write on mobile again. And for beta purposes, no more emailing stuff back and forth.
I like it
