[TIPS] - ajaxwrite (too cool to wait until next week)

This one was too cool to wait. Ajax (not the foaming cleanser) is VERY H-O-T stuff. Here is an ajax-based word processing program that looks just like MS Word. It opens in 6 seconds.
Something to think about...
While we were busy playing with your basic web pages (or writing web pages with Frontpage or Dreamweaver, etc), and installing Microsoft Office on out desktop machines, the world has been busy moving things online. I've sent you several sites in the past as examples. But, I want to make sure that you know that this isn't just a passing fad. Watch the web closely and watch as it transforms itself from a Medium to a Platform. You'll be able (actually you can NOW) to access all your files online- whether or not we think it's a good idea. AND, things are being designed to be collaborative by design. (Remember Writely.com?)
Why is this a big deal? Remember - we're not in the business of teaching kids how to live in the past.
