Google Docs is one of those things that we tend to use daily but don’t get the full experience. I know that I personally don’t use all of its capabilities, especially when it comes to collaboration. I end up using it like a flat Word document.

Google has pushed out a pretty cool demo, which invites you to collaborate with some of the greatest writers of all time. Kind of.

A “famous writer” will start typing and then it’s your turn. Once you’ve typed in the next line, the writer takes over. It’s kind of fun.

Once you’ve finished your collaborative masterpiece, you can then share it with whomever you like. Pretty neat, huh? You can have a play with it here.
