A lot of you have asked us how and when you can get Writely accounts, so we put together this quick Q&A which may answer your questions.
Q: I joined the wait list 2 weeks ago, and I still haven't gotten an invitation. When can I expect to get one?
A: Our plan is to start giving Writely accounts to folks on the wait list in early July. So if you're on it already, our goal is to give you access to Writely over the summer. If you're not on the wait list, get on it!
Q: I have a Writely account, but 12 of my friends are begging me for one. What can I do?
A: No need to wait until Writely registration opens up again. When you have a Writely account, you have the power to get your 12 friends in immediately. Just add them as collaborators on a Writely document and click "OK" to email them. You can invite up to 50 new people by adding them as collaborators to Writely documents.

Q: I have 75 students that need Writely for a class assignment in the fall - can you help?
A: As above, getting your students Writely accounts doesn't depend on registration opening up again. If you have a Writely account, invite several students and then ask them each to invite the rest. If you don't have a Writely account, get on the wait list and you'll most likely be able to get accounts for your students over the summer.

Q: So when *exactly* will you be opening registration again?
This will be tremendously helpful when it is released! I don't like having to use floppy disks to carry around reports and stuff, so this will get rid of the need. And I'll never be able to forget my hardcopy of my report!
Please make the release soon! [excitement]
I think this program is an amazing idea and I can't wait to try it out.

Nice job with Writely -- I especially like how you can (ab)use the program as multimedia multi-user chat. You mention "there's still much to do," what exactly is planned for future releases?
il G Writely lo vorrei internazionalizzato fin dall'inizio e .... lo vorrei anche vedere presentato come qualcosa di più di .... yet another G tool ....
I am waiting too ... and ... if Writely is not going to be just-another-"G"-tool ... i would love to consider and debate the possibility of a new name... see Writely Forum Thread: http://forum.writely.com/showthread.php?t=542
Lot of thanks in advance. I think this tool can be usefull to develop software too, imagine an entire group working on same code at the same time anywhere, with just an internet browser... I like the idea ^^
We need a web based word processor to incorporate in an ASP platform that hooks up thousands of european small businesses and start ups...how can we explore this option with you?
