ThinkFree encroaches in Scribd's territory
ThinkFree, one of the Web 2.0 word processors that (along with others such as Zoho Office and Google Docs) are competing in the collaborative word processing market, has introduced community features that turn it into the "Flickr of documents." Of course, there is already a service that aspires to be the Flickr of documents: Scribd. But ThinkFree allows you to create the documents, not just show them. ThinkFree also steals a march on Google Docs and other competitors, which do not offer a public face or public tagging a la Flickr. All in all, an interesting development.
