Google has acquired Jaiku.com

Google blog has announced that Google has acquired Jaiku.com.

Jaiku is an activity stream and presence sharing service that works from the Web and mobile phones. An activity stream is a log of everyday activities: your status messages, recommendations, events you're attending, photos you've taken - anything you post directly to Jaiku or add using Web feeds.

Google has a plan to use the ideas and technology behind Jaiku to make compelling and useful products.

I have a theory about why Google bought Jaiku - it was to build a mobile software app that would provide services AND location based advertising. I blogged about it at my blog, http://teddism.com/2007/10/12/why-google-needed-jaiku/

and I think it is a brilliant idea!
