Google Wave: E-mail re-invented.

Google announced Google Wave at their I/O developer conference.

Techrunch has conference coverage including the Wave keynote. Here is a brief excerpt:
Developed by brothers Lars and Jens Rasmussen and Stephanie Hannon out of Google’s Syndney, Australia offices, Wave was born out of the idea that email and instant messaging, as successful as they still are, were both created a very long time ago. We now have a much more robust web full of content and brimming with a desire to share stuff. Or as Lars Rasumussen put it, “Wave is what email would look like if it were invented today.
Pretty interesting screenshots, check them out. Techrunch also have an exclusive video interview with the creators.

    Definitely a beautiful vision. But in practical terms, it's hard to imagine Google Wave getting into the Enterprise because many of those "new" functionalities are already implemented and well integrated in Microsoft Outlook/Office.

  2. The biggest problem it solves is that you no longer have to write "See comments inline"
