Adobe buys Buzzword

One interesting application demoed during Kevin Lynch’s keynote was the online word processor called Buzzword. It’s a Flash/Flex application which can run either on the web or as a desktop application using Adobe’s AIR runtime. When run as a desktop application it can open files from the web or from your own PC, and it understands at least some sub-set of Microsoft Word documents. It looks like a nice word processor, with a simple, elegant UI, and the combination of being able to work locally or over the internet according to circumstance could make it quite attractive.

Evidently Adobe liked the application a lot, since Kevin also announced that they’ve bought the company (Virtual Ubiquity) who created Buzzword.
