Google Open Sources Etherpad, Piratepad Launches

Thomas Nybergh writes “The Etherpad code was released by Google under the Apache license a few hours ago. Google’s initial plan, after acquiring the service, was to use Etherpad’s tech with its new Wave collaboration platform and to shut down the original service entirely. Soon after the Etherpad code was released, the Swedish Pirate Party launched their instance of the service at piratepad.net. An announcement, which also mentions a new Tor node, is published on the party website (Google translation). The original Etherpad service had in a short time become a killer application for collaborative work within at least the Swedish, and according to my personal experience, in the Finnish Pirate Party as well. The Etherpad open source project is available at Google Code.”
