Free Etherpad - open source online editor providing collaborative editing in real-time

Etherpad is often embedded into team chat type services like Slack to allow for many people to simultaneously edit the same document. This could be to collaborate on getting a business case done, drafting a policy, etc.

What is different from Google Docs or Microsoft, is that it is fully open source, you can embed it elsewhere, or you can host it internally within your own company free of charge.

There are free hosted sites to try out Etherpad such as at http://board.net/ and also one that does shared spreadsheets at https://ethercalc.org/ called EtherCalc.
