Click Writely?

 

Great. Now I feel more safe putting my docs in Writely, knowing that they won't be going away anytime soon.

I'm hoping they don't get too stuck on the whole social / collaboration / web2.0 thingy... Just give me 1 URL to create a new "Untitled" document. I can bookmark that URL and hence, with 1-click I can create a new 'Word' document.
Briefly tried to do it just now, but there's too much javascript hoops to jump as a 3rd party to implement the simple feature.

I don't know about you, but I always have my browser running. So this will be a big deal. And maybe one day, I really won't need to use notepad.exe for scribbling anymore... 1-click.

(assuming I can sign on persistently, gmail style)

So,... Yahoo's gonna buy JotLive?

Well, this announcement just screwed up my morning’s todo-list… Microsoft is proposing a standard copy-paste mechanism for the web, dubbing it Live Clipboard.
Show-dont-tell,
Screencasts
Live Demo
And in case any of you missed it… though the technique works in IE.. Microsoft used Firefox to demo the video.. sea change!

Note: Web apps putting content into the clipboard isn't earth shatteringly new.. Tryanslator does in its bookmarklets, Del.icio.us too. This is more about a call to action, proposing a standard to work with.

Update: This clip will be more important to getting podcast (pod catching). Unfortunately the subscription schema isn't OPML. Oh well.
(whispers: drag and drop! drag and drop! drag and drop!... )
