  15. 15. Documents used to be more like an artifact…properly formatted business letters with highlatency, high transaction costs and all thisartifice around the structure of the document. Sam Schillace Founder, Writely Lead Engineer, Google Docs VP of Engineering, Box
  16. 16. Then the web came, reducing the focus onformatting and adding a collaborative element,but keeping in place a certain level or linearity. Sam Schillace Founder, Writely Lead Engineer, Google Docs VP of Engineering, Box
  17. 17. With the advent of Evernote and the erstwhileGoogle Wave, documents have become moreabstract, mixing images, text, communications,web pages and whatever else onto a digitalcanvass. Sam Schillace Founder, Writely Lead Engineer, Google Docs VP of Engineering, Box
  18. 18. Underlying all of this, what’s really going on is thebusiness interaction you want to have.The point of the document is you usually either recordsomething for yourself or to have an interaction withanother human being. And I think we can graduallystart peeling away layers of artifice and try to get downto the raw core of that interaction. Sam Schillace Founder, Writely Lead Engineer, Google Docs VP of Engineering, Box
