Google and Writely

Google has gone out and bought Writely, and online word processor. With this and the news of GDrive floating around, it seems that the idea that Google is going to do something "office like" isn't so hair brained after all. But then again, it may just be something to add functionality to Blogger and Gmail. With any luck though, Google will be able to offer a complete basic productivity suite (including it's Picasa and possible video editing app) for free. For so many schools out there, that in and of itself would be a godsend budget wise. But the problem would still be finding ways to get teachers to use technology. Technorati Tags:
