Looking for a replacement for Googledocs

O hai! I'm a Google avoider. I've managed to not use Gmail, and to stop using Google as a search engine. I do have a Google account, but I use a separate browser to log into that, and log out and close the browser when I'm done. My online Google-avoiding life would be complete if only I could find a good replacement for Googledocs, preferrably free. [more inside]

How can I swap large .wav files back and forth for a long distance music collaboration?

My cousin in New Hampshire wants to collaborate on music with me. I'm in Seattle. I'd like to figure out a convenient way for us to pass large .wav files to each other. I can pull his completed rock songs into a multitracking program and create vocal tracks - then I need to pass the vocal tracks back to him in the form of .wav files so he can add them to the mix on his end. I know there are web based file storage sites, and I can randomly try some out, but I thought I'd start with the hive mind: Can anyone recommend a service like this? I'm thinking free, uncomplicated and capable of handling large file sizes. The files don't need to live there for a long time - just a reasonable window of time to pass them back and forth. Have any of you done this kind of thing?

Online collaboration

I am looking for a place that will act as our online "home base" so family members in four cities can privately connect/collaborate/share photos, notes, docs, chat, instant messaging, all in the same place using the same service. So far, I am looking into groupee.com, myspace.com, grouper.com, groove.net, strongspace.com. Any recommendations, other suggestions? Thanks.
