After what seemed like forever, Google finally re-launched a service that they acquired called JotSpot. What is JotSpot you might wonder? Well, first, the official Google name for the service is "Google Sites". and this is how they describe it:

Google Sites makes creating a team site as easy as editing a document. Use Google Sites to centralize all types of information -- from videos to presentations -- and share your site with just a few people, your entire organization, or the world. Anyone can do it

Building a site is as simple as editing a document, and you don't need anyone's help to get started. One-stop sharing

Create a single place to bring together all the information your team needs to share, including docs, videos, photos, calendars and attachments. Work together

Invite co-workers, classmates, or your entire organization to edit your site with you to keep it fresh and up-to-date. And let as many or few people view your site as you want.

This application is great for making pages for a project your are working on, or a simple company intranet. The fact that sites are stored and easily accessible to people within your organization makes this a very handy tool -- and with the 10GB limit, there is plenty of space for everyone.

Here are a few sample pages that get the point across:

The new service is only available as part of the Google Apps suite -- I wonder if/when it will be released to the general public? It seems like a suitable replacement for the original Google Pages to me.
