Hey Matt. Be where you were and thought Sharepoint would be the panacea to
cure all our ails. Sadly the versions I used didn't do all the stuff MS
promises. I'm curious if the new Live system might match the collaborative
features of Google Docs. But from all my reading Live does not.

You may need to set up macros to automate your manual method. I worked with
a writer who set up a pretty ingenious process.

I should blog about it.
