JotSpot is the first application wiki company. Founded and led by Excite.com co-founders Joe Kraus and Graham Spencer, the company has a mission of making Web applications simple to build through the power of wiki. The JotSpot technology turns today?s document wiki into an application development platform and expands the boundaries of what a wiki can do for enterprise and workgroup users. The company brings together two trends. The first trend is the growing popularity of document-wikis among technical users. The second trend is the move away from desktop applications and toward browser-based applications. The company is defining a new market segment at the intersection of these two trends by taking the fundamental strengths of traditional wikis and using them to create a simple modular platform for building browser-based applications.
