Hi James, Helen, Pall and Rob,

Thank you for your splendid suggestions and pointers.
I'm not sure exactly what I want to do - but was thinking more about
performative and sideways uses of collaborative tools than utilitarian,
tasking ones. I will go and check out all of these and let you know how
I get on.

Hi Ruth,

Don't know if you've seen this list on wikipedia, (or if there's
anything that might be what you're looking for on it)


Gnome is a desktop environment. It has Ekiga/Gnome Meeting:

( http://www.gnomemeeting.org/ )

"Ekiga (formely known as GnomeMeeting) is an open source VoIP and video
conferencing application for GNOME. Ekiga uses both the H.323 and SIP
protocols. It supports many audio and video codecs, and is interoperable
with other SIP compliant software and also with Microsoft NetMeeting."

But I don't think it has any collaborative editing element to it.
