Scribd lets you publish and discover documents online. It is like a big online library where anyone can upload. We make use of a custom Flash document viewer that lets you display documents right in your Web browser. There are all sorts of other features that make it easy and fun to publish, convert, embed, analyze, and read documents.
Part of the idea behind Scribd is that everyone has a lot of documents sitting around on their computers that only they can read. With Scribd we hope to unlock this information by putting it on the web.
Nice! It certainly gets over the problem of sharing stuff online which isn’t a photo or video, say.
What’s extra cool about this service is the fact that you don’t even have to log in to publish stuff, you can just chuck it up anonymously if you choose. OK, so it’s not a great choice for sensitive information, but if you want to be able to share a document across the web, and you aren’t too fussed who sees it, it’s a great quick and dirty solution.
