November 12, 2006

Most web companies measure success by the amount of time visitors spend online with them. But Google disagrees. Marisa Meyer says Google would rather have visitors spend less time, but do it more frequently.

Making Google Better – 2

November 11, 2006

Search Within Search

Search for any popular keyword in Google. You will get…more results than you can handle.

Imagine, if you can lock this search result and search again, INSIDE IT. And do it all over again, and again…

Imagine , if you can automate the process…

The results are likely to be fantastic. Sergey and Larry, are you listening?

Why JotSpot joined Google

November 10, 2006

Hear it straight from the horse’s mouth…

“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 privacy@jot.com 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 http://www.jot.com/. If you have any other questions, please email support@jot.com.

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”

It’s time to build the Peer-To-Peer Google…

November 9, 2006

The time has come to build the new Google!

A peer-to-peer Google that lives in millions of super desktops and super laptops and super mobile devices worldwide, with the “Google OS” under the hood. A Google that is immune to both censoring and terror strikes, and will stay up even if those huge Google data centers stop working.

Sergey and Larry, are you listening?
