Hydra collaborative editor catching on. Writing on his ETech weblog on the O’Reilly Networks site, Robert Kaye digs into how Hydra, the collaborative text editor, works in a conference environment: The Hydra collaborative editor at work. [Mac Net Journal]

Kaye describes not only Hydra, but what it was like to be a new Mac user at ETCon. WHat a marvelous time it must have been. I’ve been using Macs since 1984 (I still have my 128K upstairs. I start it up and play Airborne – written by Jonathan Gay for Silicon Beach Software whenb he was still in High School – every so often). I was excited with Hydra. What it must have been like to become a part of the Mac community at ETCon and seeing the explosion of enthusiasm for Hydra. I hope it was not too overwhelming.
