The JavaScript, web-based collaborative real-time editor, EtherPad, the latest version, became available to all on 3 February 2009. It permits up to eight people to work simultaneously on the same document.

Among its features are:

No account required
The only really real-time collaborative editor on the web
Edits highlighted in author's color
Infinite undo history
Syntax highlighting for editing code
Every keystroke backed up
A chat box

All you do is open a document and flick the code to those in your group who will participate collaboratively.
