I had heard of websites that would allow two or more people to share a common text editor, so that changes to the text can be made and simultaneously viewed by all participants in real time - this kind of websites is ostensibly used for conducting interviews online.

I know they exist (I had read of them in a tech magazine), but I can't seem to find the right search term for google to throw me a correct link. So, I'm asking you guys, as you might have used it before, or know what I'm talking about.

I thought Wave was dead. "Although Google Wave is no longer being actively developed, you can still log in, access and export your waves." – Dennis Williamson Feb 2 '11 at 4:48
@shan23 Also, questions on web applications are meant to be asked over at Web Apps Stack Exchange. Don't repost, however - this question will be migrated over there soon – Sathya Feb 2 '11 at 4:50
@Dennis: no wave is not dead yet but may be soon but as per Shan23's requirement he want to a functionality which you can still access in Google wave. – Harry Joy Feb 2 '11 at 5:02
