Google Wave

Watched Google Wave presentation (http://wave.google.com/) and was quite impressed. It brings together all independent communications mediums together onto a single system. It merges IM, Email, Discussions, and potentially everything into one. They say it will be launched in September of this year. You can register on that site if you want an invite.

Although I am very impressed by the technology aspects of the demo, I also think that they are catching up with the Twitters and Facebooks of the world. If you look, Google missed on those and have no equivalent service. So, I wonder if this is a scheme to bring back the "collaborative" and "social" nature of those services to Google. We will see.
