Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
This is only spookly because just yesterday I was drafting a post suggesting that Google might do exactly that. It was all part of a post about the recently leaked screenshots of the Google Calendar application, and I was going to hypothesise that Google might buy a service like Writely (with Writely specifically identified) and develop it into a full-blown online Office-style application suite, as part of the push to get us all to store more stuff online.
So I very nearly had a scoop. So close, but yet so far. I’m beginning to feel like ITV.
No, I’m not bitter.
Well maybe just a smidge.
