Office Live Workspaces beta begins

officelive_thumb News Microsoft announced today that it is rolling out entry into the beta of Office Live Workspaces, a new service that will allow document storage in the cloud from within Office applications.  You can sign up for the beta, and then download and install a plug-in to Office to be able to access a menu to be able to open and save Office documents to cloud based storage.

While access has not appeared for me here yet, US based customers who signed up for the beta should be getting accepted in to the program shortly, we’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, David Berlind at ZDNet has posted a video walkthrough with Kirk Gregerson, who we interviewed in October.
