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.
