Coventi

Here’s a cool tool – part wiki, part MS Word: Coventi. While writing a recent research proposal, I used a wiki for collaboration instead of Word (the track changes feature is nice, but unmanageable after a while). The problem with the wiki, however, is that it blurs individual identities and comments. If I want to approve changes (or hold discussions around suggested changes – in context, instead of the “discuss” wiki tab), rather than have them directly inserted into a document, wikis don’t work that well. Coventi combines the collaborative nature of wikis…with the ability to comment and discuss a document (like Word).
