Thanks Calum,
             I believe SubEthaEdit was the app that got Jeff thinking
about how much he'd like to have GNOME-Office apps do real-time updates.

Since the GNOME (and Gtk) Free Software world contains beautiful and
powerful communication tools like gaim, xchat, gnome-meeting and
evolution we have the opportunity to go one better than both MicorSoft
and Apple by providing immediate collaborative document development in
our productivity apps.

towards a shared documents with real-time updates. We could use inkscape
as a shared whiteboard for doodling ideas as another way of resolving
these types of conflicts.
