Congratulations to Jaiku

Congratulations to Jyri, Petteri, and team at Jaiku for the Google acquisition. For those of you reading this blog, you know that these Finns have always been SIME-favorites. Jaiku will be working with the Google developers to expand its technology into new, and hopefully, useful services. In order to focus on innovation instead of scaling, Jaiku has decided to close new user sign-ups for now. Existing users can still invite new friends, though.

More about the company: Jaiku is an activity stream and presence sharing service that works from the Web and mobile phones. The service helps you stay in touch with friends and family by allowing you to post updates of what you are up to. By inviting friends you can see and comment on each others' updates and activities.
SIME is proud that Google would opt for Scandinavian Jaiku and not Twitter. More on that aspect of the deal at Mashable.
