EDIT Google Groups adds new collaborative tools

Ever get the impression that organizing an event is like herding feral kittens? If so, then you might want to check out Google Groups. If you're unfamiliar with the service, Groups are basically bulletin boards that you can participate in via email, with the ability to set boards either public or private. Up until this point, some of Groups' best features have been limited to to users of Google Apps for Business, but that all changes today. Now everyone can create a group inbox and email address to collaborate on items -- which really beats wading through a gaggle of forwarded emails. You can also assign tasks to other members of the group, manage email and mark items as resolved. No time for dealing with the same questions over and over? Hit 'em back with a canned response -- don't worry, your secret's safe with us.
