Great guide to Google+, collaboratively created (in Google Docs, of course)
Tom Anderson originally shared:
 
Here's a Google Doc that is being created about Google+ It's titled "A Collaborative Document: (or how 120+ people wrote a book at the same time)" Despite the title, it's actually a guide being created by Google+ users on how to use Google+. And they're using Google Docs to write it, of course. This is a nice illustration of the post I made on the first day about how Google+ is making Google stronger. Read that here:

It also shows the way in which Google+ users are similar to Facebook users: when given the tools, they will contribute positively to further the service. I mention that point about Facebook's platform strategy in this post about Zuckerberg's first public response to Google+:

In the past, I've used Google Docs mainly because I wanted web access to files. I've never collaborated on it, and now I'm hooked on doing that. Google+ is making me use Google products that I formally only had a slight interest in. In the past week, I've started to toy with Blogger & Picasa. Why switch to Gmail, I used to think? Yahoo will do just fine. I've been using Gmail more and more.

Btw, welcome new users, I see the invites are open today -- read this guide for tips.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life,”
Jobs said. “Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results
of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions
drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to
follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you
truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs
