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]

Have you ever collaborated on a project with someone you met on Mefi or elsewhere online? How did that happen? Was there something about how the online environment that made it easy to reach out or be approached?
I'm interested in learning what kinds of dynamics or aspects of online communities foster collaboration. [more inside]

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?

We're a group artists in a non-profit and are currently using Facebook to organise ourselves. I find it lacking - it's not a platform with collaboration in mind, so I'm researching alternatives. Hlep! [more inside]

What is the easiest way to collaborate realtime on a web document online with someone who isn't technical, ideally with some sort of free web app rather than special software? Is there a way to do this without requiring both people to sign up for an account, etc?

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.
