Collaborative writing is more common on the Internet than in print. It's also more complex than individual writing because you must decide how to organize the effort and how to start the document. We'll consider some alternatives and also differentiate between compiled documents – collections of separate individual efforts – and jointly authored documents where more than one person can make changes. We'll also see that some documents might follow a pre-determined structure, while others are open to any change, but they all change, and we will give an example of the evolution of a wiki. Finally, well look at a few of today's collaborative writing tools, and mention the contribution of Doug Engelbart who invented many of them.
