Google Sites: Collaboration from Google

Need to create a team site to centralize all types of data and information (think wiki)? Check out Google Sites a part of Google Apps. Here is Google's short summary of what it does:
Google Sites makes creating a team web site as easy as editing a document. You can quickly gather a variety of information in one place — including videos, calendars, presentations, attachments, and gadgets — and easily share it for viewing or editing with a small group, your entire organization, or the world.
I yet to try out the features -- but plan to test it for a couple of projects. I'm interested in thinking (and hearing from others) about how law firms and lawyers can use this technology service.

A review of Google Sites with more in depth discussion of the features. Business Week, VentureBeat and others cover the release of Google Sites.
