    I agree that there’s a lot of activity, but I wish somebody would explain what major user problem these online tools are solving and how that’s supposed to replace Office. Having the ability to do a group review of a document online is neat, and I’m sure it’ll get used, but it’s a vast leap from that to replacing the word processor you use to create that document in the first place.

    When we’ve looked at user adoption trends for web apps, it seems to be directly tied to what practical user problem you solve.
