Writely is right again

Writely is out of it's self imposed hibernation now. For those of you who haven't heard about it, is a web based document editor which was acquired by Google some months ago. Since that time, it has been not been accepting new users. Now the wait is over.

I first heard about Writely while browsing through the TopCoder forums. Snewman (one of the TopCoder's TopCoder) was the guy working with (owner of?) this company and he was discussing performance optimization problems related to the website. The site has some cool collaboration features such as shared document editing, ability to export as an RSS feed, publishing it to the public or a blog. You can also export the document as a PDF and HTML. Also you can view the revision history of a document and compare between two revisions.

Last night the SRM 316 was my comeback to TopCoder competitions after a long time. I solved the 250 but saw it going down to a challenge as I failed to handle a corner case (once again). Better luck next time.

The article was written in Writely itself. Keep checking :)
