Just caught this on the Google blog . Google buys jotspot. I have previously talked about the wonders of jotspot and the ability to virtualize , collaborate and share using the service and other Wikis like backpackit. With Google acquiring jotspot , I am sure we are very close to seeing a fully integrated experience with shared documents, spreadsheets and enterprise wiki features from the google-jotspot team.
Maybe I might just move my “self ELN” away from backpackit to the new Jotspot. For now Jotspot has disabled further registrations and sent its users an email explaining that
“Google shares JotSpot‘s vision for helping people collaborate, share and work together online. JotSpot‘s team and technology are a strong fit with existing Google products like Google Docs & Spreadsheets and Google Groups.”
All of this signal Googles move into the ongoing wave of enterprise wiki service applications.

Update: Clearly the acquisition of Jotspot by google has everyone very excited . Check out the responses here
