Let's try this again. My last attempt crashed.
Volkswriter was an early word processor for the PC. I may have used it. I do remember using a BASIC word proocessor published in (most likely) either PC Magazine or PC World. The blog/aggragator/personal publishing/social software is much like it was then only time ten or a hundred - enourmous creativity and lots of choices.
Will a Word arise out of this?
frassle has lots of things I like but for now it is so slow as to be unusable.
