and started to work on a chat system to be integrated to the concurrent
editing interface, for collaboration and live help.
There's a concurrent editing interface? Where is it (intended to be)
used? It would never work for Wikipedia. The lack of a clear revision
history and identifiable authors would be a big problem. It would also
interfere with collaboration between people that aren't online at the
same time (imagine three people are active on an article, two of which
are online at the same time and so use the concurrent interface, how
does the third person get involved?).
