It also relies on social engineering to avoid people typing over each

zeroconf implementation), as does iChat (the Mac's built-in videoconf

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.

From my lurking on the inkscape-dev list it appears they're some way
towards a shared documents with real-time updates. We could use inkscape
as a shared whiteboard for doodling ideas as another way of resolving
