To be honest, that was so long ago that I couldn't even remember what JotSpot did, but the big news is that it has been relaunched as Google Sites.
I think it is big news, although I have to admit that I haven't tested it yet. Nonetheless, the concept is very exciting.
At no cost, small companies, schools, project managers, groups and so on can have access to a welter of online apps that will enable them to work collaboratively online, without having to pay for hardware, networking or software licences. Which would have been the way to do it otherwise.
Create your own intranet using the web page builder. Share team calendars. Send mail. Post and review documents, upload photos, videos, files for common use. Prepare online presentations. Update events for internal notice with a blog.
Using Web 2.0 technologies, Google has aimed to make it as simple as it can be at the moment for the ordinary office to make all its admin tasks electronic and increase efficiency.
And because it's so simple, the learning curve should be relatively small. A godsend for companies that have been having to pay for software training.
I suspect the reservations will be about security. After all, anything that's online can ultimately be hacked, but how many people really suffer that, unless they've been extremely lax about use of passwords or even indiscrete about what is shared within the team.
And there will also be the core of people who resist doing anything on computers. Are you still employing them?
I only wish I had a project on which I could test this out. I'm already making plans ...
