Friday, March 10th, 2006>p>We blogged about Writely way back (in the Web 2.0 sense), and it was an instant hit. Then we saw that Google has purchased the Writely folk.
Many are saying that this shows their desire to get into the online office market, but maybe it is more about talent? The functionality in Writely can be used in a wide range of products that Google has, and will have.
The next question: Will Microsoft buy DabbleDB as they realise that it is what Office Live should be? There is a huge problem with enterprises with Access DBs that need to migrate to the web. There is PAIN in that area, and Dabble DB takes on a lot of that pain.
