  1. We’ve desperately needed a way to break with the Word-to-paper model of editorial collaboration. This is exciting news indeed.

  2. Looking forward to this! This is something that is absolutely needed, and the team behind it are just the people to do it.

  3. Looking forward to try it.  ( Shameless Plug : ) We at Betaout.com too dared the dream of : the ability to track changes, compare versions, and get feedback—all without the soul-crushing feature bloat and nasty web-unfriendly code of Microsoft Word?. 

    Do try us out and let us know what do you think.

  4. Have you guys ever heard about Google Docs ?

    Their equivalent of Microsoft Word has all that’s needed for collaborative writing: changes tracking, comments, discussions, comparing versions and instant messaging right inside the browser.

  5. Not to mention the horrendous experience of trying to write in Google Docs on an iPad (yes, I know…)

  6. This sounds fantastic. I welcome anything that will reduce time spent jumping through the Word > Text Editor > Web hoops, just to get copy into nice, usable HTML.

    +1 Sara’s comments on why Google Docs doesn’t cut it.

  7. Is SubEthaEdit (Mac only, not cross-platform yet) similar to such this propose?

    And so I checked Editorially’s site that said offering Javascript engineer position? What about Network / Socket programmer?
    I don’t see anyone mention about protocol or port that could connect all person remotely to be able to do “collaborative writing” or I missing something?

    BTW cheers for Editorially team.

  8. I’m enjoying Editorially. I do think that lightweight stylesheet creation/selection would be helpful. For instance, in the editor h1, h2 and h3 all display at the same size currently. Also in the exported html the unordered lists seem to be broken, showing only as * one * two *three inline. Instead of html preview in the browser there is export to a zip containing the .md and .html files. Why not have preview and export?
