Good old Adobe Reader–now in web 2.0!

What we see in Adobe’s latest roll out is the transformation of a free one-way tool (a commonplace of the first decade or so of the web) into an empowering, collaborative, and thus much more useful application.

Maybe they were spurred on by Google Apps, which have offered many of the same features for the last year or so. Will Adobe’s venture come too late, or just in time? The answer to that question interests me less than the mere fact that it has occured at all. It is as though an old friend has learned new tricks–grandma texting her grandkids, etc.

A wonderful web 2.0 world, no?
