Google added presentation tools to their portfolio. What I wasn’t expecting which we see is the ability to share a live presentation with a number (not sure of limits) participants, with persistent chat…add Google talk and chat and waddya get? hmmm…..
And Lotus announced Symphony their free open source based word processor, spreadsheet and presentation tool. I think the power here will come when connectors and integration into the various IBM document and content management and collaboration solutions are announced. I can’t see any independent non-collaborative office tool surviving 5 years from now.
