See a demo of what JotSpot sold to Google today

Congrats to JotSpot for selling to Google. (JotSpot is an online Office, er Wiki, suite).

One reason I have interviewed almost all the Wiki companies in my first five weeks of ScobleShow is because I sensed that the Wiki market was white hot. Why? Cause on a post a few months back my comments went crazy. Your interest predicted a deal like this. I predict others are coming.

My interview with Joe Kraus, just a couple of months ago, is here. Here is a demo of JotSpot that Joe did.

Google has definitely gotten over its “not invented here” syndrome with the purchase of YouTube and now JotSpot. They are buying audiences and best-of-breed technologies, which JotSpot definitely was.

Microsoft’s Office team should be looking at this acquisition this morning and wondering what Google is up to.

It’s pretty clear to me: Google is going where the money is.

Where is Chris Pirillo moving to?

Interesting. Chris last week was saying he had a “big” secret. No one could figure it out. This week he announces he didn’t move (he was supposed to move to Los Angeles).

Sounds like lots of chaos going on. We’re looking forward to his wedding on December 9th to Ponzi. That is, if THAT doesn’t get moved.

He has me intrigued with his “big” secret, though.

We should have a contest to predict which state he’s moving to. He taunted me last week saying I’d never guess what he’s going to be doing.

Oh, let’s start a really crazy rumor. He’s moving Ponzi to North Carolina so that he can have banana pudding and be Jon Edwards’ press secretary. That’s about the craziest thing I can think of Chris doing.

What’s the craziest thing you can think of him doing?
