  • One other thought —To this point, part of why email hasn't been replaced is because it continues to be the communication medium through which communications media reach the user with their most urgent/important information — Facebook notifications, Twitter DM's, Google Doc notifications, etc. Instead of replacing email, these systems have actually elevated it as the premier personal communication tool online. A necessary part of unseating email would be to ignore it entirely and create a new client-side application to replace it. I suppose Google would be a top player to work toward this — perhaps starting with a 'Wave Viewer' in Gmail and slowly growing that segment... very compelling indeed!

  • Hey Carl. Good question. You can also have a Wave with just two people which works a bit like instant messaging only with extra features. We just got access to Wave in the last fortnight ourselves -- the Preview version is a long way from what's promised in their presentations so you're not missing a huge amount at this stage. One key issue will be adoption -- it's only any use if all your colleagues use it too which could take some time, and it's a complex app to learn to use. Watch this space...

  • Does Google Wave allow the user to create permissions for the Wave?

    I would hypothesize that, regardless, it surely won't be the end for e-mail. Agreed the implications for improving collaboration are serious, but while many of the e-mails we send are in regards to collaborative projects, there's still a fair amount of one-on-one interaction that's necessary. Sue and Scott will still have a need for conversations that they don't want Purchasing involved in, etc. Not to mention the purely 1-on-1 and personal uses for e-mail. Perhaps I took this too literally. Or perhaps (as someone who doesn't yet have Google Wave *sniffle* ) I don't fully understand the capabilities.
