Google Acquires Writely

Thanks to Aaron Meck (Armeck) & DigeratiPrime for the heads up on this

Discussion of a web based productivity suite from Google has
been making the rounds on the internet for quite some time, and with the recent
news of a Google Calendar project in the works many see Google positioning
itself to take on Microsoft Office Live which is currently in beta. The
acquisition of Upstartle, a Silicon Valley
based software development company is sure to add fuel to the debates.

Writely, the first product from Upstartle, is more or less a
web based word processor. It allows users to edit and publish documents online,
either privately, in collaboration with specific people, or publicly on the
internet. Writely is currently free for use as it is still in beta, but
representatives state that once released they hope to provide the basic service
for free with additional features to be made available for a reasonable
subscription fee.
