Google Phoen around the Corner and Jaiku a part of it

Good morning! Blogging from Sotkamo. The Google phone is around the corner and Jaiku is a part of it. I wonder, why didn't Nokia see the potential? Or how long has Jaikuu and Google been talking.

It was evident that this was about to happen. The guts feeling was in the crowd. The last weeks Mindtrek as a a great example. People used to extend the meaning of a seminar.

Wonderful Jaiku users,

Exciting news, Jaiku is joining Google!

While its too soon to comment on specific plans, we look forward to working with our new friends at Google over the coming months to expand in ways we hope you'll find interesting and useful. Our engineers are excited to be working together and enthusiastic developers lead to great innovation. We look forward to accomplishing great things together.

In order to focus on innovation instead of scaling, we have decided to close new user sign-ups for now. But fear not! All our Jaiku services will stay running the way you are used to and you will continue to be able to invite your friends to Jaiku.

We have put together a quick Q&A about the acquisition at

Suomalainen Jaiku teki kaupat Googlen kanssa. Yksityiskohdat tästä osoitteesta:


En ehdi kirjoittamaan enemmän. O´Reilley ennakoi oikein, että Jaiku edustaa tulevaa Web 3.0. Tein pikablogin KK-Netiin asiasta eilen illalla ja aion kehitellä juttua pidemmälle tämän päivän aikana. Hienoa, että suomalainen Web 2.0 ja sosiaalinen media menestyy.

Tämä ennakoi myös Google puhelimen tuloa, josta olen kirjoittanut aika ajoin. Nokialle Jaiku olisi sopinut mainiosti.

Onneksi olkoon, suomalaiset nöritit ovat jautaa, jaikukaa!


Jryki is one of the owners, The CEO, I guess.

Some coverage:


Helge: Good morning from snow covered Sotkamo. We got first snow during the night. Jaiku and Google is a Cindarella story. A part of the pride belongs to the users. This is a user generated success as so many other SM’s.

Helge: Morning congratulations to Jaiku Folks from Snow covered Sotkamo. The ground is white up here. Don’t pack your ski gear yet for cross-country and downhill. This snow will go away. The estimated time for first snow is 15. october. Global Warming isn’t here yet. The snow is here five days earlier.

Hello Connie, nice to see you on Jaiku. I guess, you got the news that Google is the master of the Finnish Jaiku. Another big news: We have snow on the ground.
