Google Just Can’t Stop And Aquires JotSpot

After one of the most discussed acquisitions in the web 2.0 era, Google makes another step in acquiring the web and buys JotSpot.

For those who don’t know JotSpot is:

a privately held company headquartered in Palo Alto, California, is the first application wiki company. Founded in 2004 by Excite.com co-founders Joe Kraus and Graham Spencer, the company is pioneering do-it-yourself application publishing to enable anyone to create, publish, and share collaborative and personalized wiki applications.

JotSpot’s wiki allows you to create rich web-based spreadsheets, calendars, documents and photo galleries. It’s as easy as using a word processor: you don’t need to know HTML. After the most likely integration with the Google Docs&Spreadsheets and with the Picasa Web Albums, Google is just getting one step away from the old discussed Google Office Online.

Two things to know is that paying customers will no longer be billed on JotSpot and that the new registrations are closed for the moment.

  1. Google Calendar Rules Indeed, I think Google Calendar is great, so this part of the Google Office Online you mention is already outhere.
    You can send invitations to others and keep track of their response and comments, including their own guests.
    And what is really great is you get mobile notifications. It works in Romania too – you will get a sms message telling you about your appointments, when you what to be reminded. E-mail notification is of course implemented.
    I gave up using Lotus Notes Calendar because of Google’s, imagine that 🙂
