Quip Builds for Computing Everywhere - The New York Times

See Introducing Quip Desktop (Quip Blog) for more details on the new Quip Mac and Windows clients

"On Wednesday, a company called Quip, which makes an advanced mobile tool for creation and collaboration around things like documents, spreadsheets and presentations, announced it is releasing a version of its software for desktops.

Quip is not just reinventing Microsoft Office 25 years after the fact. It has built a kind of distributed computing system, the sort of thing seen in the biggest data centers, across a series of cloud computers and mobile devices.

Quip is small, but its pedigree wins it outsized attention. It was founded by Bret Taylor and Kevin Gibbs, who have worked on things like Google Maps, early versions of what is now the Google Cloud Platform, and Facebook."
