I use the SimpleNote website all the time for personal use. I'd like to use something like it to collaborate with my team at work. I tried setting up a a wiki once, but the new/(navigate to existing page -> edit) -> save page cycle was annoying for just jotting down a sentence or two, and keeping things organized started to be too much work. My goal is to reduce the friction for documenting things to nil.
Here's what I'm looking for:
- Search as the primary navigational interface
- Fast. It takes 5-10 seconds to open a Google Doc and start editing. SimpleNote loads from a cold start in 3 seconds.
- Bonus points if I can host it on a server in our network.
- More bonus points if it allows login with a Google Apps account
I saw a Rails app that did something like this with a grid of index cards once, but I don't remember what it was called.
