  1. These six steps are why I think that Google Wave is so promising. Waves are easily embedded anywhere. The interface is similar to micro-blogging but larger conversations are OK too. You also get to aggregate your blips and waves in an email style GUI.

    1. Hi Glenn! Thanks a lot for dropping by and for the feedback comments. Yes, I agree with you that Google Wave surely is going to become rather interesting, but I decided a while ago I would want to wait and see it playing live to make up my mind whether Wave would be as disruptive as what most folks have been saying. I am not really sure.

      Certainly, it can bring the next wave of email interactions, but, just like email, it may have got one specific issue that will make it difficult to compete with social software: serendipituous knowledge discoveries from weak ties, which is basically the main reason why social software is so powerful.

      We would have to wait and see how it paves out, but certainly, it will be rather interesting. Thanks for the comments!
