Google just launched a very ajaxy web page creator. It doesn’t work with Safari as of yet. You need a Firefox on Mac to make it work. Also, does anyone else get the feeling – Geocities, minus the clutter? No wonder Larry Page is going ape shit about that whole 20% time on pet projects thing.
Scott Rafer just emailed, and pointed out that “pages.google.com is a multi-user wiki. I happened to be flipping between two browsers when checking it out and got a message … which said “Page Being Edited by Other User, Break Lock and Edit?” “ Here is someone talking about Pages being a magnet for spam people.
Ross Mayfield of Social Text says, no this is not a wiki. “But google pages is close to single page editors positioned as office 2.0, like Writely,” he says. Whatever it is, when compared to Apple’s iWeb, it is butt ugly.
