jotspot-logo.pngI blogged the news at Search Engine Watch that JotSpot has been acquired by Google. Bill has some additional thoughts on it over there. Bill explains in a Cre8asite Forums thread;

The two who started Jotspot, and sold it to Google look like they are now Google employees. That's kind of interesting because they are two of the five co-founders of excite.com.

Interesting, indeed.

Also, so Google owns Writely. In a sense, Writely is very similar to JotSpot - so why not just put a few developers at Writely to work on a Wiki editor?

Anyway...

Forum discussion at Search Engine Watch Forums, Cre8asite Forums, DigitalPoint Forums, and WebmasterWorld.
