Google Gets Wiki With JotSpot Buy

Google is adding a wiki startup to its arsenal of online applications. The company said Tuesday it has acquired JotSpot, a two-year-old software company focused on popularizing wikis beyond the geek crowd by making them easier to use. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Based in Palo Alto, Calif., JotSpot offers software that ties the collaborative power of wikis to a desktop app-like interface, enabling users with minimal technical savvy to edit and share digital content. Popular with programmers, wikis allow contributors to collectively work with content, traditionally text or code files. JotSpot goes beyond text documents, enabling users to pool calendars, spreadsheets, photo galleries and other digital files.
