Isn't that exactly what a version control system does? (from a
simplistic point of view)
If you don't want to run a server yourself there are some pretty
good hosted ones. But a basic use of a version control system
seem the be easy enough (especially if a good GUI client is used).
There are also hosted version of version control systems,
Github, Google Code, etc that perhaps can be used.

I'm not sure I understand why you describe Dropbox as one-way. If you
share a folder with someone, it appears in both of your Dropboxes and
any changes people make to the contents is shared with everyone. It
worked quite well with a 3-party project I was working on recently.
* Google Wave
* etherpad ( now that it is opensourced, you can have it installed and
* Microsoft Live Suite?
* Zoho colloboration??
