If we ignore the fact that the term Web 2.0 is controversial for all kinds of reasons and concentrate on the applications themselves, which Web 2.0 apps (using the broadest possible definition) do you use most?
JotSpot is a wiki application with builtin functions for adding calendars, spreadsheets, blogs, photos, etc.
This was a predictable enough move on Google’s part as they had no wiki software in their arsenal of Live web applications.
This acquisition by Google gives Google access to wiki software for its enterprise play. The list of Google’s applications in this space is becoming unassailable and their acquisitions strategy is extremely smart – they are buying proven applications with intact and enthusiastic customers already in place.
Interestingly, I see Jeff Nolan and Zoli Erdos are pointing out that JotSpot’s two main competitors, SocialText and Atlassian, are offering free migration for JotSpot customers to their respective platforms!
This acquisition only goes to further prove that collaborative software is here to stay.
