Salesforce Gets Social, Acquires YC Company Stypi [TNW]

On the Google Wave (RIP…) tangent, see Where Source Code Goes to Die (The Economist)

“We saw Stypi at the YC combinator demo and TNW managing editor Brad Mccarty was suitably impressed by the startup and its innovative product:

Stypi is Google Wave done right. If they’re right, it could be huge. From Jason Chen and Byron Milligan.

It isn’t entirely clear if the deal is an aquihire or aquisition and, if the later, exactly how Salesforce will use Stypi and its platform.

That said, we see plenty of potential for the Stypi product for enterprise customers, who could make use of the real-time editing of documents and other files, which help and encourage collaborative working.”
