Web Based Office Space

[ page last updated: June 07, 2006. ]

This is just another small round up of Web 2.0 softwares that i can think of off the top of my head. Hopefully, i haven’t forgotten too many, but it’s only getting harder and harder to keep up with all these new sites and services. So i am going to try and keep this list updated as new web based services spring up to fill this relatively new market. Any suggestions for web-based softwares i may have overlooked are welcome.

The 3 main areas of the traditional Office Desktop Suite are: Word Processor, Spreadsheet, and Calendar. Some would argue that Presentation software (like PowerPoint) should be included in there somewhere, i’m just not one of them.

The modern Web-based Desktop equivalents are:

Word Processors -

Spreadsheets -

Calendars -

    For small business, shared work calendars (and shared contact management), be sure to take a look at AirSet (http://www.airset.com).

    hi doug,

    i gave airset a try and although it definitely has a lot of useful features – i am hesitant to add it to a list that is so deliberately chopped up into 3 narrow categories. if i had to, i would probably include it under tha Calendars category (as you seemed to have suggested) but in reality, airset seems like a fully blown productivity suite. it would be like putting basecamp.com into the Word Processors category instead of just the writeboards.

    makes me wonder if you guys have ever thought of modularizing different portions of airset, to allow people to sign up for say, just the Lists feature, but then be able to add the Calendar module, or the Contacts module (or both) at some later date. This way they get what they need now, and if/when they get more comfortable with the site, service, and company, they can always add modules. builds loyalty, while reducing the learning curve. also, keeps ‘em coming back for more. just a thought.
