Paris blogue t'il?

Maybe this is me being French, but I am amazed at the amount of activity in France around everything web2.0. I see people involved in Coworking, Pinkomarketing, I see great start-ups being represented at shows in the US. Maybe something that has to do with the online culture of people who were raised with Minitel?

I'll will not be in Paris for LeWeb3.0, but I will at least get a glimpse of who is involved in these events the week before:

Paris Blogue-t-il? VI

I will be looking for the begining of an answer there, why so many French are involved in this? Is it me or is there really something?

I love Google :-)

I was not impressed by Google acquisition of YouTube, but since wikis are a key component of building a better web I really like this one:


JotSpot is now part of Google

We're writing to let you know that Google has acquired JotSpot. We believe this is great news for our users. More importantly, we want to reassure you that you'll continue to have uninterrupted access to your account. Both Google and JotSpot are committed to supporting our customers, and we understand that users have invested a lot in our products. In the near-term, we're focused on migrating JotSpot to Google's systems and datacenters. We'll work hard to make that move as seamless as possible so that customers won't be inconvenienced.

Why is Google acquiring JotSpot?

Google shares JotSpot's vision for helping people collaborate, share and work together online. JotSpot's team and technology are a strong fit with existing Google products like Google Docs & Spreadsheets and Google Groups.

What does this mean for JotSpot customers?

We believe that joining Google will accelerate our team's vision of offering users the best collaboration platform on the web. Google shares that vision and presents us with the world's best environment for delivering on it. We'll be taking advantage of Google's world-class systems infrastructure and operations expertise to ensure that access to your JotSpot is fast and reliable. We can't share any of our plans publicly just yet, but we can tell you that we're incredibly excited about the possibilities. We can't think of a better company to have been acquired by.

Will paying customers still be charged?

We will no longer be billing customers for the use of the service. Although you will still have use of the product at your current pricing plan, we won't charge you anymore when your current billing cycle expires.

What about security and privacy?

Your data is yours — that doesn't change at Google. We will continue to work to ensure the privacy and security of your data. Furthermore, Google is as committed to privacy and security as we are. Since the user information you provided to JotSpot will soon be transferred to Google as part of their acquisition of JotSpot, we want to provide you with the opportunity to retrieve your user information and cease usage of the JotSpot service before the transition. If you do not wish to continue using JotSpot, send an email to in the next sixty days and we will reply with instructions for retrieving your user information.

Answers to more frequently asked questions are available at If you have any other questions, please email

In closing, we wanted to offer our sincere gratitude to you — our customers — for believing in us and helping us achieve success. We look forward to continuing that relationship at Google.

Best wishes,
The JotSpot Team
