More on Google Wave

Filed under: google, wave — Tags: , — webcubic @ 11:31 pm

We watched a video of the original presentation of Google Wave.  The presentation team reminded us of some earlier technologies such as bulletin boards and message boards.  These enable users to keep a record of messages that multiple people could read and post new messages.

The Google team also drew a contrast between conventional email (something they characterized as an older technology) and Google Wave which is characterized as a conversation.  The specific implementation speeds up the conversation by enabling the everyone on the conversation to see the message character by character.

One day, email will be obsolete.  Google Wave may be the replacement.

An expected component is a developer API which Google hopes will encourage others to build gadgets to work with Wave.  There are also extensions that are referred to as robots.

The Google video runs about 80 minutes and can be seen at http://wave.google.com/help/wave/about.html#video
