If you’re looking for a place to create and share documents with the team you love, you owe it to yourself to give Feng Office a try. It’s open-source (which means… you might need an I.T. guy to help you set it up on your web hosting machine, but once you get it set up, it’ll most likely serve you well and be free for life, for as many users as you like). It’s got a built-in word-processor like the one you probably already use, a built-in presentation creator mostly like the one you use, and a spreadsheet program in beta. On top of all that, you can set it up behind a secure site (https://…), host it on your own server, back it up yourself so you’re sure it’s done right, use it to share documents right and left, and do a dozen other things well — all for less than one trip to Starbucks… again, assuming you have friends with high internet I.Q.’s. :-) Check it out at…


In case you look for it on the web, until last week it was called “OpenGoo.” We waited ’til they removed the horrible name before we could promote it here in Brigada in good conscience. (Not really — but it *is* handy that they chose a new name.) Authored by software architects in Montevideo, Uruguay, where my wife and I served as missionaries. That makes it especially good. :-)
