Having trouble getting your clients to use Google Docs? I know the feeling. My clients work a lot in MS Office, and many are too scared to try Google Docs, think it's too much of a hassle, or can't access it from restricted corporate networks. The result is outdated documents, endless change-merging—you name it. It seems I'm always searching my emails looking for the latest version of whatever they've sent me.
Finally, there's a solution. oneDrum, released this week, is a peer-to-peer coauthoring platform like Google Docs, based entirely in Microsoft Office.
- automatic syncing of shared folders and files, so everyone always has the latest version on their computer
- complete version history, so you can roll back to a previous version of the file at any time
- real-time editing of documents (on PC, coming soon to Mac)
- and end to confusion between system and application keystrokes and clipboards
- all over a peer-to-peer desktop application.
Oh, and it's free.

I recently emailed a friend of mine and noticed I got a bounce back but it was of a different kind. The subject line said Action Requested and the body had this message:
Please add yourself to my Guest List so your messages will be delivered to my Inbox. Use the link below.
So I clicked the link and got directed to Boxbe.com, at which point I had to complete a CAPTCHA in order to deliver my original message to my friend. Lo and behold I had discovered an auto-CAPTCHA system for all of my email inboxes so I can stop all the nonsense spam. This is awesome stuff.
