<<A document shared with 6 friends...>>
I was today (just to check it). The last one I've really edited is all the instructions for my University registration (sort of a synthesis of several postal mails, and e-mails from different senders). I also use it as a check-list.

I host a group blog with about a dozen other crazed exercise nuts. We have two embedded Google Presentations embedded in our sidebar. One is like a wiki-chalkboard that we post announcements and trashtalk to, the other is a sort of persistent photo gallery. I was playing around with both just last night.

Several months ago, I started keeping drafts of future blog posts on Google Docs so I could access & add to them from a variety of locations. I rarely crunch through a blog post in a single setting or even from the same PC, so this is really handy. Anyway, I referenced one of my blog articles in progress just a day or so ago...

Someone emailed me an MS-Word file, and Gmail offered to open it in Google Docs, so I thought "why not?".

It was faster than loading the file into OpenOffice.

I use it every day. I've got my home page for the web in Google Docs. My novel in progress in there. (like Justin above I wish docs could be larger), my budget, my todo list. In fact I'm trying to shift everything to Google, although for special tasks I use MS Excel and Word.for their extra capabilities and capacities.

I keep a running list of Asian dramas and American films that I watch. Originally it was to know which ones I had watched and not rewatch old ones. Now I Iike to show it off to my Korean friends. I'm learning a third language, Korean. I prefer to watch the Korean dramas, it helps my study of the language.

I use a spreadsheet shared with my roommate to keep track of all shared expenses (and electricity/gas/cable bills under each of names). Whenever either of us buys toilet paper, dish washing soap, laundry detergent, etc., we put the cost down on the spreadsheet. It automatically keeps track of how much we owe each other. Every few months we reconcile the difference with a check.

I have no idea if I can uploaded such docs as far as I don't share them, but Gdocs as my "read later library" is perfect for me!

I'm a grad student and I maintain my Lab Notebooks for all my projects in Google docs. So I use Google Docs almost everyday.

I think Google Docs has improved considerably over time, but i'm annoyed by the fact that you can't copy paste pictures straight off the clipboard. I'm being convinced by friends to switch to buzzword instead.

"I use Google Document's Spreadsheet to save all my login account credentials"

I love Google Docs, but for login account credentials I use Delicious.com (formerly del.icio.us). I just bookmark the login page, put my username and password in the notes field, and then check the "do not share" button so only I can see the info.
