[liberationtech] secure text collaboration platforms

Hi All,

Thanks for your comments and feedback.

I am often in low bandwidth contexts, and find Google Docs just too heavy.

I looked at installing Etherpad on a server - but perhaps will hold off on that and utilise Riseup's install. 

@Micah - often 30 days will be too long for my use, or in some other cases too short. It'd be great to be presented with an option - at the time of selecting the name of the pad - to let the user determine the life of the pad. Just a suggestion.

Thanks again.

Best, Sam.
