Google buy JotSpot and continue march to all-free Web applications

Google has just announced buying JotSpot, the leader in Wiki applications and online collaboration tools.

They have shut the JotSpot service down to new users until Google integrate them with their systems. JotSpot will likely stop charging for their services and make money by selling ads within free hosted Wiki applications.

If Google integrate JotSpot with Docs & Spreadsheets and Blogger.com, your average user could get ever closer to building their own, rich websites and website applications.

Smart move Google, and yet again, beware Microsoft!
