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.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
- William Shakespeare
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky

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

A spreadsheet with a famous mathematician?
The ultimate presentation from a famous TED talker?
