PBwiki snaps up Schtuff.com

PBwiki has been on aggressive move in the highly competitive collaboration for past few months. Last week they had disclosed their Series A funding round and today announced that they have acquired another collaboration space player Schtuff.com. Schtuff was founded and developed by the same team behind JanRain who are the developers behind OpenID. PBwiki claims that Schtuff has around 1 million users which would be a big jump for the startup.

As they have mentioned on their site and also is pretty obvious, PBwiki will be adding support for OpenID. It is a story for another day why I think that OpenID has a long way to go before it really clicks. Right now it is interesting to watch the pace at which PBwiki is growing.
