Microsoft had an awesome party last night and I went to cover it for Pop17! [Click here] to watch the video there. It was hard not to notice that there were a lot of models, but I didn’t see anyone famous like Steve Ballmer. It’s ok, I liked what I got because I did meet some TV producers, writers and actors because Microsoft is demonstrating Workspace with them and their projects at HBO.
The party was held to celebrate the new Office Live Workspace. It’s kinda like a wiki where people collaborate on their projects.
“In Google Docs, collaborators have the ability to work on files together, in-real time. Ten people may edit and/or view a document or presentation at any given time. Fifty people can edit a spreadsheet at the same time.
Although Office Live Workspace allows for collaboration, it’s not real-time, online collaboration. Instead, if one user is editing a file, another will be informed the file is “checked out.” When they finish editing and save their changes the document is checked back in for other users to access.”
