Right, it's not entirely new, which is I think why some people are
saying it isn't a big deal. The problem is, it's only not new for
people like us. We obviously see parallels to talk pages, and wikis,
and other collaborative software. Most people have never really used a
wiki, or even a mailing list. And I mean most people in developed
countries who use computers. This interface is simple enough that it
offers the benefits of wikis, mailing lists, and shared documents to
people who can currently only use email. That's why it's important.
