» Former Microsoft NetDocs manager comes back to run search | All about Microsoft | ZDNet.com

Interesting...

Brian MacDonald, the former Microsoft manager in charge of the company’s stealth Web-based productivity-suite project at the end of the 1990s, is coming back to help run the search group, according to sources close to the company.

Microsoft veteran MacDonald led the NetDocs project back in 1999. NetDocs was to be a Web-based word-processing and calendaring system, which Microsoft officials decided to kill in order to prevent possible competition with Microsoft Office.

Netdocs, aka "universal canvas" at PDC 2000, never completely went away; it became XDocs, then InfoPath.
