From Paperless to Softwareless

Are we ready for library PCs and patrons who don’t want our software but do want to use the web based software from anywhere. It appears that the potential for a softwareless PC will precede the paperless office! Check out this posting here at Duct Tape Marketing.
Here’s a teaser of the types of software available without needing to lock and load:

You might know of more apps and categories (certainly I would add blogs, IM and wikis). Tell us in the comments. The above list is linked on the original post.
So, for those libraries who can’t afford to offer office suite apps on your end user stations, here’s your chance to serve the real digital divide!
