Joe Kraus of JotSpot announces on the official Google blog that Google has acquired them.

JotSpot’s wiki software will likely join Google’s Apps For Your Domain and maybe even Docs & Spreadsheets, as the post alludes to. Sign ups for JotSpot have been closed, so get on the wait list before the other 50 million people do.

Not only does Google get Kraus and Graham Spencer, co-founders of popular Web 1.0 search engine Excite, they also get a really great domain name in jot.com.

Funny, but in May there was a rumor Yahoo had bought them.

Nothing personal, but can we stop this kind of stuff? Please don’t write something awful in your blog post, like Jotoogle or GoogSpot. When has Google ever resorted to such awful naming conventions? They didn’t call Keyhole “Keyoogle” or “Googhole”, or announce that YouTube would be GoogTube. Google has better sense than that, even if they did name their document package after a sex fetish.
