Microsoft Mojo


Microsoft has a new collaborative editing program named Mojo. Mojo is a way to connect with other people to edit a document in real-time. Microsoft demonstrated connecting to a contractor off-site to edit some financial documents. You can initiate a connection via Messenger, e-mail, or phone and talk to the other person through your PC while you both work on the document.

Mojo demo

Mojo is a better solution than remote desktops because you share only the open window and not everything on your computer. There is a button at the top of the window labeled “Take Control” that suggests two people cannot make changes at the same time.

I wonder if Mr. Wiki, Ward Cunningham, was involved in the Mojo project before leaving Microsoft.
