Insert Business Model Here

I just read the rumors about Jotspot being acquired.  While I have no information as to the accuracy of the report, I wish for the best for Joe Kraus and team.   Recently, I've been playing around with their new JotSpot Family Site that launched last week.  I think Jotspot has been doing a great job of building specialized applications on top of a wiki framework.  (Their tracker application is very slick).

One thing I noticed while playing around with their Family Site, however, is that they are pretty up-front with the fact that their business model is still a work in progress.  Check out their pricing page (at http://familysite.jot.com/pricing.php).  Very refreshing!  A Web 2.0 startup that admits that their pricing strategy is still unwritten...

Hey Josh. I used to work for you way back in the Infonautics days. I was there doing tech support at age 16 or so and basically that job set me on the path that I chose to become a software developer.

Anyhow I found out about your blog from Rick Segal and recognized the name so I started reading. Regarding 53,651, it's really refreshing to see someone posting the truth about this 1998 repeat that's going on. It's almost like nobody learned their lesson before. Subscribed!
