Today, a post on the Google Docs Blog reminded me that it is possible to try out Google Docs features without having to register for a Google account. Through Google Docs Demos you can try out the presentation, spreadsheet, drawing, and document tools of Google Docs without signing into a Google Account.

I’ve introduced a lot of people to Google Docs over the last few years. Some of those people almost instantly become devoted Google Docs users while others do not. Either way, one thing that remains the same is that getting everyone in a group signed-up for an account can be time-consuming. If you’re trying to introduce new users to Google Docs, Google Docs Demos could be a good way to get everyone trying the tools as quickly as possible.
