Colour me unsurprised
They really needed to just put these features as optional parts of Gmail. They almost have with the dreaded 'Buzz'. The concept of realtime conversations in the way Wave was constructed is clever but having it separate from your email just adds another level of complexity.
On the other hand it could have been really useful for business if you could have run your own less buggy version. My team is spread over four offices in three timezones so the ability to work like this would have been good, with the document sharing, etc. Far better than MSN and the other methods we have.
But oh, you can't use it in IE only chrome
And on my brand new laptop it dragged it to a juddering halt - so slow
It was a good idea, it was really confusingly organised and presented
So will other people presumably, as most of it's open source. But yeah, expecting people to sudddenly migrate their communication habits over to somewhere confusing and empty was never going to work. It was a ghost town when the private beta ended.
once with Brumsa
once with Theo
once with _dexy.
it was pointless. for me, at least.
I typed *wave* at someone. Not sure if I ever check to see if they replied.
Hi MMNAT! :)
(stuck in never ending Hi! smiley causality waveloop)
Or Wave Pictures?
Or the Wave Machines?
But couldn't even be bothered to check it out.
Buzz will surely get canned sometime soon.
Maybe they'll resurrect some of the ideas in ChromeOS.
Did anyone ever get into using that Mflow (spotify wannabe) pyramid scheme thing. I added a buch of DiSers, 'flowed' about ten tracks, and forgot about it (you could only install it on one machine, which is pretty gash). Apparently someone bought something based on one of my flows, but I'm not really sure what that means in practice.
but one that I never really quite got - even though I understood how to use it. If that makes any sense?
Should probably officially can my post ^
