Another Great Rich Internet Application: Buzzword - Online Wordprocessing

Being pretty is one thing, but being incredibly functional is what makes RIAs exciting

Greg Wilson's Blog

Okay there are thousands of rich internet applications (RIAs) out there that I could write about but I’m trying to be very selective in order to provide a good sampling of different uses of RIAs and their advantages. Being pretty is one thing, but being incredibly functional is what makes RIAs exciting.

One key advantage to this type of document creation is the collaboration features. For example, multiple people can create, comment on and revise documents. Everyone works with the same version of the document so you avoid the error-prone emailing back and forth of files.

Buzzword is in preview mode and is free for all to use. It was recently acquired by Adobe so many cool changes are coming. Also, a version for AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) is in the works so you will will have the option of the same functionality in a desktop version.

Adobe recently acquired Buzzword. More information about Buzzword can be found on Adobe Labs.

I also found a demo on YouTube that demonstrates basic word processing, document sharing, etc..

Tons of other examples of RIAs are available at http://flex.org/showcase.
