Why use a Google Doc?

Google Docs are a great tool for synchronous collaboration on a single document. With up to 10 editors adding to and changing any part of the document at anytime, from any place, putting together a presentation, for example, can be interactive - and exportable to most word processing and spreadsheet file types.
