Hurricane Isaac sidestepped New Orleans on Wednesday, sending the worst of its howling wind and heavy rain into a cluster of rural fishing villages that had few defenses against the slow-moving storm that could bring days of unending rain. Isaac arrived exactly seven years after Hurricane Katrina and passed slightly to the west of New [...]

DudaMobile, the DIY mobile website maker, fresh off news of its $6 million Series B, is today announcing a partnership with Google. Going forward, Google’s GoMo service, which launched last November to refer business customers to development shops that could take their website mobile, is now offering a mobile website builder that’s powered by DudaMobile.

To be clear, prior to today, the GoMo website provided a list of vendors, but never actually integrated any of their tools into the service. Now, GoMo has expanded its offering via this exclusive DudaMobile partnership, and will offer free mobile websites to businesses across the U.S. (Sorry, world.)

The new website builder, available now on Google’s Howtogomo.com, offers templates, site hosting, and even free premium features like “click-to-call” and mobile maps, all of which will remain free for a year.

DudaMobile and Google worked together previously on a GoMo-sponsored event in Mobile, Ala. which saw more than 450 local businesses build mobile-friendly sites using DudaMobile’s platform. According to DudaMobile’s Chief Marketing Officer, it was this event that opened the doors for today’s collaboration.

“The joint effort between DudaMobile and Google was a no-brainer. Google is on a mission to educate the world on how to GoMo, and DudaMobile’s platform allows businesses to go mobile literally in minutes,” Mink said of the partnership.

The startup, which started off as a white label offering, rolled out its self-serve platform in August 2011, allowing anyone to instantly create mobile websites. However, one of the company’s more unique features was its ability to keep the mobile site in sync with changes made to the desktop version. The resulting mobile version works on iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone devices.

As of March, DudaMobile announced it broke 1.4 million websites built and hosted on its platform, and that, since the beginning of 2012, its user base has grown by more than 100,000 new users each month. The Google partnership, clearly, will help those numbers skyrocket.

A half-century ago, much of the world was in a broad state of change: We were moving out of the post-World War II era, and into both the Cold War and the Space Age, with broadening civil rights movements and anti-nuclear protests in the U.S. In 1961, John F. Kennedy was inaugurated as the 35th president of the United States, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to fly in space, Freedom Riders took buses into the South to bravely challenge segregation, and East Germany began construction of the Berlin Wall. That year, Kennedy gave the okay to the disastrous Bay of Pigs Invasion into Cuba and committed the U.S. to "landing a man on the Moon" with NASA's Apollo program. JFK also oversaw the early buildup of a U.S. military presence in Vietnam: by the end of 1961, some 2,000 troops were deployed there. Let me take you 50 years into the past now, for a look at the world as it was in 1961. [50 photos]
