Yesterday, in a bout of Google Wave nostalgia, I stumbled upon the concept of EtherPad on arstechnica's post-mortem analysis (http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2010/08/google-wave-why-we-didnt-use-it). Combining EtherPad with LaTeX immediately came to mind as something that could have significant benefit on scientific collaboration. Sure enough, someone has already come up with the idea and implemented it! (I'll need to play with this a little to see if the idea works...)

For an even more ambitious idea that isn't yet available, see:
