Google I/O 2009 Keynote, Day 2
Google Wave – Product, Platform, and Protocol
- Attempt to answer “what would email look like if it was developed today”
- Combines Gmail, Translation, collaboration via Google Docs, Photos, etc., all in one
- Because it is completely open, companies can host their own instances of Wave and Google never has to see the data – yet the users of separate platforms can still communicate with each other!
I’m looking forward to WordCamp this weekend. I’m curious to see if there will be any WordPress / Google Wave integration already. Being able to have blog comments automatically pushed to users who aren’t actually looking at your blog would be a huge win. If there’s no WordPress integration project already, I may just start one.
