Collaborative Real-time Online Text Editor - Etherpad

Etherpad is a collaborative real-time online text editor that Richard just showed me. It lets you see your changes and others immediately, unlike a wiki where you have to save changes before the other person can see your changes. This type of tool is great for when you need to hammer out documentation or a configuration file with one or more people at once. We used it to edit wiki page contents of a summarized to-do list for a meeting discussion that Richard was going to. *
