Software pioneer Bricklin tackles wikis (Article)

CNET News.com reports: "In 1979, Bricklin released VisiCalc, the first spreadsheet for personal computers. Now he's close to finishing the beta for WikiCalc, an open-source, browser-based collaboration tool that mimics the functionality of a spreadsheet while leveraging the technology of wikis, which let anyone, anywhere manipulate data across the Web."

It will be interesting to see if this technology takes off. I think its a great idea, I would like to see how people will use it.
