PMware vs. Wave

I've grown skeptical of most new collaborative communication tools. They always seem to suffer from an inherent problem: they feel like they were designed by project managers for project managers. (When I worked at Microsoft, I called this PMware. Microsoft is basically packed with PMware.) This use-case is, needles to say, quite limited. But I can see Google Wave spreading to a larger audience. The demo is 80 minutes long but O'Reilly has a summary. It essentially collapses IM and email into a wiki-like space. It's pretty cool.


Waxy pin-pointed a spot in the demo where there's real-time translation via a bot named Rosy. Cool.

oh snap.. respect the email.. i'm killing this year's predictions. Didn't see Google coming but it makes sense cuz lots of folks have gmail acccounts. Discovery done.

This does sound really neat -- could potentially change the way a LOT of people do things on the Internet. Thanks for the link to the summary!
