Buzzword gets word count, easier sharing

Adobe’s online, Flash-based word processor has been revised and now includes word count, handy for journalists and essay writers:


It also has easier sharing: simply copy the URL at the top of the document you are editing to create a link. I intended to demo this here; but cannot because Buzzword does not yet support public sharing. You can only share with other specified Buzzword users identified by their email address. Buzzword says public sharing is “a feature that we’re actively investigating.”

Amusing: I noticed that my document had a number of flagged words, wiggly underlines that indicate likely spelling errors. Two of these unrecognized terms were “Google” and “Zoho”. “Buzzword” on the other hand is in the dictionary.
