google docs for the world (whoops!)

the nytimes wrote up an article yesterday about the “problem” with google docs and the ability to inadvertently share something with someone that should not have access to something…

now for individuals, this could be embarrassing (some document you did not mean to share with someone gets passed around), but for businesses this could be product specs, security issues or worse…

the obvious solution is to not allow access to google docs (or the like from a business) but many people find it so easy it is really tempting. a great way to share and collaborate, but a “fat finger” and a document flies off to someone whose eyes are not permitted for viewing of this file…

what to do… thoughts?
