Writely Getting Tightly

Bundling? Sounds like something from the Microsoft playbook.

More tightly integrated with its owner, that is. I’ve always wondered how Writely was supposed to make any money. Today’s email brings a clue. New users or the users you invite to collaborate on documents will need to get themselves a gmail/gcalendar/gpersonalised account to participate. Good move, I think. Writely is a cool tool, but it’s a poor vehicle for advertising. If it starts to pull its weight by drawing more people into the Google empire, then it will remain free and a focus for development for a bit longer.
