Google Sites expands: Anybody can create wiki-like pages

A few months ago, Google launched Google Sites, a hosted wiki product built on JotSpot technology. But until this week, Google Sites was only available to Google Apps users, which basically meant you needed to have your own domain name to set up a wiki. Now Google is opening Google Sites up to everyone. If you've been living in a cave for the past few years, a wiki is basically a page that's o...

Google relaunches Jotspot as Google Sites

Nearly a year and a half after acquiring Jotspot, Google has finally opened the hosted-wiki service back up to the public. Now branded as Google Sites and packaged as part of Google Apps, the service aims to help users create group collaboration tools that can be easily edited and changed. From within Google Apps, administrators can control which users can access a specific site and what, if any ...

Google has big plans for JotSpot in 2008

It's been about a year since Google acquired Wiki/page creation/collaboration/calendar/etc site JotSpot. And for most of that year, there's been a message at JotSpot.com saying that you can't sign up for a new account because Google is still integrating the service. Blogger Andrew Miller reports that Google may be preparing to launch some new JotSpot-based services starting next year. Miller att...

JotSpot = Google Wiki? and the launch of Google Presentations

The word on the web is that Google could be transforming JotSpot into a Google Wiki. Google acquired the WYSIWYG wiki website creator last October, and there have been numerous discussions about what they could be doing with it. From making it into the GDrive storage location for storing and sharing spreadsheets, calendars, files and photos, to integrating it into Google Apps as a business wiki. W...

JotSpot open for business soon?

Google acquired JotSpot, the hosted wiki development company, last October, and integration has been a slow process. It initially took a few months to get JotSpot Version 2.9 up and running and integrated with Google systems and released back to those that already had an account, but there has been no news on when it will be publicly available. The last Jot blog entry went over a few changes that ...

Could JotSpot = the GDrive?

It would be great if Google had one single location where every service they are offered was centralized, and it appears they're working on one. After wondering why Google had purchased Jotspot some time ago, GuillaumeB and Google Operating system among others have come to the conclusion that JotSpot could be the start of a home for all of Google's applications and our documents; "The GDrive". Cu...

Microsoft working on Google Apps competitor?

Michael Arrington over at TechCrunch caught what could be evidence that Microsoft is prepping some sort of online spreadsheet program, which would probably be a stripped down version of Excel. Microsoft Developer Tod Hilton posted on his personal blog that he's moving from Microsoft's Global Foundation Services to the company's Excel Services team. And yesterday, he wrote that the product "has ton...

Jotspot had a simple WYSIWYG editor, with advanced search and ...

Wetpaint hosted wiki service launches

After a long private beta period, hosted wiki service Wetpaint publicly launched this weekend. If you're familiar with JotSpot, there's not much to tell about Wetpaint: it's a service that lets anyone show up, create a wiki, and edit it via a WYSIWYG interface. It has all of the Web 2.0 trappings, including RSS feeds, tagging, and some nice Ajaxy touches. Pages have a prominent "EasyEdit" button...

JotSpot Family Site provides birthday and event calendars, Google-powered maps, family trees, polls, and a family blog.
