Google and Writley

Om Malik's blog is reporting that Google has purchased writley, a nice web app I came across several months ago. It's basiclly a simple word processor, but it's done online, and you can collaborate with anybody else. Similar to a wiki, but with different functionality. A similar product, writeboard, is even more basic, can be found over at 37signals.


Interesting write up and speculation in the article as well...

hi, I will introduce myself. I am in the dental hygiene program with Maria's sister, therefore I always visit her incredible blog. Just recently my mom loaned me a book that I could not stop laughing at. When I looked to see who the author was it just so happened to be Matthew Buckley. Suddenly my mind went to Maria's blog and how I had seen a matthew buckley post on her site before. I figure you must be the same person. If in fact you are, I think you know my brother. My mom said that you and my brother were in the same ward. Do you know a brother Frost? I will keep the first name annonymous in case you have no idea what or who I'm talking about. Hahahah, anwyay, I love your book, I'm trying to study for my dental hygiene boards but i always find myself picking up your book to read instead. I grew up in a family of 4 older brothers so I can relate to pretty much everything you write about. I actually laughed so hard I was crying which I've heard happens to some people, but I have never actually experienced myself. Anyway, let me know if this is really the matthew buckley I'm thinking of.

yep, I'm the guy who wrote the book. And I'm pretty sure I remember your brother. Did he just move to Texas? You should drop me an e-mail at matthewQbuckley[at]gmail[dot]com...
