All they need to do is add Writely, the online word processor, and you’ve got something much more efficient that VPNing into the company network and accessing your files and data that way, using applications on your laptop. You can work anywhere there’s an internet connection and a web browser, and access your key files.
It’ll be a while in coming, and it might not be Google that does it, but I think I just saw the future of journalism flash before my eyes.
