If, like me, you discovered Writely just after Google took it over and stopped new registrations, you may be interested in ShortText. The idea is simple: When you get to the site you're greeted with large text box. You put in what you want, then click on the create url button. This gives you a unique url that you send to others for them to view what you've written. You have the option of giving the text a passcode to make it private. Not making it private means anyone can come across what you've written, which may not be a good idea. For a small fee ($2) you can create a custom url with an address of your choice. The faq gives numerous ideas for uses of the site. I use it as an online scrapbook.
