Hi Everyone!

Im currently setting up a bussiness with a friend. Part of the job as Media Manger, is im creating all the logos, leafets and other documents. We can't meet up person very much, so i was wondering:

what would be the best online tool to use to upload and share word documents, images etc, so we can both edit these. I would also like to have a discussion part too, so we can discuss things directly within the tool itself.

Any ideas? If you need any information, feel free to ask!

I have used something like this Gotomeeting to be able to see documents and talk on line at the same time. But that does not allow editing by all parties. You could use Dropbox for that.

Google Docs should also help.

I've used Webex in the past (see webex info)

Amongst other things I used it to provide remote training to users in Japan. I ran the software demo on my PC in London and Webex presented the demo on the PCs in Japan at the same time as syncing in the conference call.

I'm pretty sure it provide interactive collaboration tools (where you hand control back and forth, such as editing documents), but I've never used them.

Dropbox is brilliant, I use it to keep three machines up to date with each other.
