The Perils of Real-Time Collaboration

Online collaboration is a new feature in Microsoft Word, so new that it really doesn’t work yet. While Microsoft is trying, Google has done it properly with their Google Docs. The problem, of course, is that your collaborators may dive in and offer suggestions when you’re not quite ready.
