Wave Google Wave Bye Bye
Twelve months on and Google has given Wave the chop. Whilst not the prettiest thing I’ve seen it was interesting idea as it tried to mash together a number of web based communication technologies but alas suffered from the usual Google problem. It was an engineering idea looking for a market. Now more often than not this is exactly the way new technology and ideas are born but 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway have a particular track record in trying to find an alternative revenue stream to search. Hard to believe people were selling Wave invites on eBay not so long ago.
Hat doff to Tara.
