Hi OAs, can anyone recommend a half decent online collaboration space? It would be for just three of us, just to store and edit documents to avoid repetition or losing changes, and to account for different softwares. features like web chat etc. may be useful but not essential. The key feature must be that it's free, ideally open source and won't require a special e-mail address.
Thanks in advance
Thanks John, well I finally managed to wangle a free version of "central desktop", and I will post as to it's usefulness in case anyone has need of something similar
Hi Elaine, my recommendations would depend on what kind of online collaboration are you planning to do, but here are a few comments and suggestions.
Thanks a million, Heikki, I've started a wiki, the software discrepancy was too risky.
I haven't got to grips with "central desktop" so perhaps no write-up will happen now
PS- love the name "freemium"
Good luck with the wiki! The key to collaborating effectively with a wiki is to document your changes. When saving a new version, write a short edit comment summarizing the most important changes. Also, wikis let you compare versions, seeing what's new in a glance. This is invaluable when there are several editors.
Also, if you are working on a long document, consider splitting it to many shorter wiki pages. This makes simultaneous editing easier.
This new service is in beta, but looks interesting: http://liveminutes.com/en/beta
