Google acquires wiki startup

From, October 31, 2006: “Google Inc., expanding its efforts at providing software that helps users create and post their own materials on the Internet, has acquired a California startup that develops online collaboration tools known as wikis.

JotSpot Chief Executive Joe Kraus said JotSpot would be able to tap into the Internet search leader’s large user base and robust data centers capable of handling any growth.

Our vision has always been to take wikis out of the land of the nerds and bring it to the largest possible audience, Kraus said in an interview. There’s no larger audience that you can reach than one you can reach through Google.

Google‘s acquisition of JotSpot, which closed Monday, comes as the Internet search leader prepares to purchase the online video-sharing site YouTube Inc. for $1.65 billion in stock.”
