  • “Because of the real-time nature of Wave, I quickly found that if I engaged in one wave (lower case) and gained replies in another, the other contact might feel that I had “left” that thread. Since I can’t yet be in two places at once, the real-time aspect was more like when you have multiple chat windows open in Google Chat or Facebook Chat than if you had more than one e-mail message. So staying on top of all active waves can be a tremendous challenge – one that practically promises to keep you embedded in the application until every single message is muted and all your contacts go do something else (which may never happen).”http://www.louisgray.com/live/2009/10/google-wave-hits-shore-flash-flood.html
