Google and Jotspot

JotSpot: New foundation for Google Office?
Google, it seems, is buying rather than building a collaborative applications platform, first with Blogger, Writely and now with JotSpot -- and more to come. This can't be good for Zoho, ThinkFree and other cloud-based Office suites. It is, as David Berlind notes, a timely answer to the recent Microsoft/Socialtext collaboration.

I've been testing several wiki platforms. Jotspot is one of them. The Google move does please me while I can do more things in one environment.
  1. Jotspot Wiki
  2. GoogleTalk
  3. Gmail Google Mail
  4. Blogger blogplatforms
  5. Writely for wordprocessin
  6. Google Calendar
  7. Google Maps
  8. Google Earth
  9. Google Spreadsheets
This is a very interesting development from my point of view. Social Collaboration is becoming easier than ever before and all this can happen on a global scale.
