Me, and Edgar Allan Poe


I can always use a hand when I write blog posts.  Usually, I don’t get any and you’re stuck reading what I can manage to scrape together.

But now, I can get a little famous help.

Google Docs now has an experimental “Master’s Edition”.  It’s one thing to collaborate with Fred down the street, a group of students, planners for a project, collaborators for work, but now you can get to write with one of the greats.

The “Master’s Edition” lets you work with

  • Friedrich Nietzsche
  • William Shakespeare
  • Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Charles Dickins
  • Edgar Allan Poe

Head over to this page.  You’re dumped into a new Google Word Processing document with the above six as collaborators.

Start your document.  When you finish a sentence to pause for a thought…your collaborators kick in for inspiration.

It’s going to take some time to master this, I see.  In the meantime, it’s just fun to work with the team!

What’s next Google?

A spreadsheet with a famous mathematician?

The ultimate presentation from a famous TED talker?

Have fun!
