Week 5: Web Office Tools and respond to the following question: Is this the future of all software products? What do you think?
Continuing education is already ofter asynchronous. These tools support that on a local level. Any person or organization could use these tools for community based education and collaboration. Already I have seen people put their articles on line and allow for comments before publication.
But just as people want to hold paper, they want to hold on to documents. I refuse to archive my mail. It’s not leaving me, it’s just leaving my immediate drive.
Regardless of my issues, software held on the web will become faster. I think the transition will happen. I think the generation coming up will have less and less concern with privacy and if that isn’t a concern, this is the way to go.
