JotSpot to replace Google Pages soon?

It has been a while since we've talked about JotSpot -- the wiki service Google acquired on October 31st last year. The last time it came up was when Tony discovered it would be part of Google Apps after playing around with specially crafted website addresses.

It has been a while since we've talked about JotSpot -- the wiki service Google acquired on October 31st last year. The last time it came up was when Tony discovered it would be part of Google Apps after playing around with specially crafted website addresses. That turned out to be a false alarm, kind of. Shortly after that article, the method Tony described to verify his theory stopped working.

Well, today it's back. It works once again, possibly indicating that the service is getting closer to launch -- but of course that is only speculation. There is no way of knowing for sure when Google will actually launch something, but it's probably safe to say that it is coming.

It is also interesting that Google appears to have this service installed on their own Google Apps account now too. Google says they "eat their own dogfood", so they could already be testing it out internally before the general launch. I wonder if they did that with Google Presentations too?

You can get to Google's JotSpot login page is by using http://pages-beta.google.com/a/google.com -- unfortunately, that link doesn't work for any other Google Apps accounts yet. After analyzing that URL, it makes me think that JotSpot is going to be a complete replacement for Google Pages one day. Do you use Google Pages? If so, will you be upset if they replace it with JotSpot, or are you ready for a change?
