Mary Jo Foley posts on Steve Bryant's report that tomorrow at the Office 2.0 conference, Google will unveil its GoogleDocs project, which merges Writely and Google Spreadsheets into a unified collaboration suite.

Just yesterday Yahoo Mail went dark on me for 30 minutes. Enter the world of trade-offs.
