Several years ago they bought Blogger, the largest blog host in the world.
Earlier this month, they picked up YouTube, current hot site for video sharing.
Writely, an online word processor, was purchased in March and added to their web-based spreadsheet and calendar applications.
Today, Google announced they’re acquiring wiki hosting company JotSpot.
I’m wondering how long will it take for the company to make all this stuff work together?
Even more interesting, how long will it take before Google’s whole collection becomes a reasonable alternative to the Big Monopoly’s Office software package for the average computer user?
I’m betting on before the end of this decade.
However, now comes the hard part. How do they make money from giving away blogs, wikis, and office applications?
