Okay that might sound frivolous but there are reasons. Google has entered the personalized portal space. Check out http://www.google.com/ig. Although, it is a basic and rudimentory offering but it still is a good beginning. Everyone knows about Google’s different search models – google appliance, desktop search, web search and thousand other different types of searches. Besides, they also have a “Search History” and some other cool search related features. In the collaboration space, they have Hello (http://www.picasa.com/picasa/redirect.php?tid=Y2NpZD0zODcx) which could be their IM offering and Google groups (http://groups-beta.google.com/grphp?hl=en&tab=wg). They also do news syndication, maps, froogle and catalogs.
As far as content management goes, they are a leader in blogging which essentially is a poor man’s CMS.
They already have APIs to access many of these features. With a couple of more acqusitions and some consolidation in different services they have, they might be a player to watch for in the PCM space.

That’s an interesting take. Google will be next Microsoft
If thats not enough – with google struggling hard to get the local content in and working (for atleast some part of the world) – it would be quite interesting to see how things shape up.
Will i be able to see what people in my neighbourhood think and do ? what do they blog and what is their online identity ?
There is thin line between PCM and Blog definitely – and to cross it – they will just need to link Picassa with Blogger and also easy creation of pages with photographs!.
Actually Google has already integrated Picassa with Blogger (and hello, their phot sharing product). Check out http://www.hello.com/press/picasa_blogger.pdf and http://www.hello.com/how_bloggerbot_works.php
