  1. Writely looks cool but that’s LAME that they’re not accepting “new registrations to their beta program.”

  2. oh sorry preston, they are not – i am sorry to hear that. hopefully they will read this and get more energized and open up the registrations.

  3. It may seem lame, but you gotta be realistic. I know these guys. This is a bootstrapped project and they just got discovered by the blogsphere. So the server is overloaded. They need to get more iron and that’s going to get expensive.

    Preston, would you pay to use Writely? If not, don’t call it lame to limit registrations. Call it rational.

  4. I’d pay for it if I at least got a decent preview of it first – I maintain that it’s lame to pursue any kind of PR without the infrastructure to handle success… btw, I am in pr/marketing for a software company and we try to plan for a best-case scenario.

  5. Honestly the demand for the service came so quickly that they want to make sure that the users have a good experience. Things are already in motion to be able to handle more users soon as well as new features.

Sort of like Trillian/Adium, but in a browser window. The interface is so simple and elegant. It is still alpha so be kind. It as a few issues, so be kinder. But this is slowly turning browser into more than just a browser. Like Writely, Meebo is a three-person start-up. Elaine Wherry – the Ajax guru; Sandy Jen – Server side programming; and Seth Sternberg – jack of everything else. Mark Jen has an indepth look at this app. In Broadband Life Posted Wednesday, September 14, 2005 at 3:02 PM PT [...]

  7. [...] Many people are making same mistakes again. Om Malik mentioned Writely as a thin client. Why would I need a word processer over web, the inherently unreliable media. And even if I do, why would I trust keeping my documents with someone [and somewhere] else. [...]
