I've been really interested in using gzz as a base for 
collaborative learning environment, especially for collaborative
knowledge building and sharing. However, recently I've been
thinking that it could be reasonable to start from a small scale 
personal writing tool, which, in turn, could be later used as a 
writing tool in the collaborative environment.

Don't know whether this makes sense, but I've tried to do some
pictures which (hopefully) illustrate the idea. Comments, please ;)
