Google Buys Jotspot

What is Jotspot?

Jotspot is a wiki and offers enterprise social software. Jotpsot is targeted at small and medium-sized businesses. The company was founded by the co-founders of Excite. Now they are part of Google:

It was pretty apparent that Google shared our vision for how groups of people can create, manage and share information online. Then when we had conversations with people at Google we found ourselves completing each other’s sentences. Joining Google allows us to plug into the resources that only a company of Google’s scale can offer, like a huge audience, access to world-class data centers and a team of incredibly smart people

Some speculate that this acquisition could signal that another piece of the supposed Google office suite has fallen into place.

JotSpot has modules for spreadsheets, calendars, documents and photo galleries, and could extend that to presentations, forms and other kinds of content. JotSpot also has an Application Gallery of add-ons, such as project management and forums. Like salesforce.com’s AppExchange, a vibrant ecosystem could build up around JotSpot’s platform and Google’s monetization platform
