Want a Writely Account?

Writely was recently acquired by Google. If you want an account to try out this online Rich Text editor, visit the forum...

Update: OK, with so many forum posts, let’s change the mode of operation to make it easy to see who still needs a Writely invite:

  • Those who need an invite, go to the chat room but leave some seats free for those who have invites (there’s another room if this one’s full).
  • Those who already have an invite, enter the chat room to invite a couple of people.

Anyone who gets a new invite please share your invites as well! And thanks to everyone who shared so far.
