Hi Darrel,

It is quite easy to use.  The interface is almost identical to a word
processor; where the power comes in is that you can edit a document at the
same time as multiple other users.  Your changes show up almost instantly
(i.e. as you are typing them) on connected users' screens.  You can
actually have a slightly delayed discussion with another user on the
Etherpad while trying to hash out an idea or concept!

Each document is called a "pad".  A list of pads is available once you log
in at .  Simply click the pad name to
join the pad and start reading/editing it.

Hope this helps!
