EarlyStageVC: Writely - The Back Story

EarlyStageVC: Writely - The Back Story "Sam, Steve, and Claudia have done it. Writely is now part of Google. Here’s the back story to this ‘overnight success’ that every Web 2.0 developer should know. Overnight success is part of the Myth of Silicon Valley. This overnight success is twenty years in the making. And I think it means the business-as-feature GYM shopping spree is going to slow down from here."

Interesting background on the Writely team (via Barry Briggs), including key roles on FullPaint, FullWrite, Claris Home Page, and Adobe Dreamweaver, apparently.
