Week 11: Goonies

Where has Google Docs been all my life? While I am slightly concerned that Google does seem to be controlling the world, this is one of the best things out there. Back in college the "easy" way to right a group paper was just to pass it around through email, then senior year one teacher showed us how to use Track Changes in Word. What a great thing that was, unfortunately, it seemed that the rest of the campus was unaware and therefore made my super knowledge useless.

Being able to share documents this way could solve the worlds problems. Alright maybe that's overstating it, but the freedom that Delicious and GoogleDocs provides is amazing and extremely useful. Passing this simple information on to patrons will help them become more mobile and productive. It has certainly helped me. While I will continue to use my somewhat excessive like 8 gigs of thumb drives, and will never be caught without my external hard drive, GoogleDocs will be an important tool for professional use in the future.
