Next time we're working on something, I'll pull it up so you can get
better experience than your crashes. :)
It sets the standard for slim and useful realtime shared editing.
playback feature is cool, too - it has built-in revision history that
you can playback at fast-forward speed.) I've used it hundreds of
times to write notes together during a meeting, to work on any manner
of different documents, etc.
One good use case - MediaWiki is terrible for concurrent editing,
unless you are clearly in different sections. Any overlap or mistake,
and one editor loses out. What I've done many times is copy the
MediaWiki markup over to Etherpad, work on it there with others, then
copy back when done.
