The first 20 Google Wave invites

by Lennert Dorman on October 31, 2009

So within a week all my invites have been sent out to my coworkers and friends. Within our agency we know have almost everybody on Google Wave. Which means I can already use it for a project.

People ‘wow’ when they see the live type and exclaim ‘Scary!’ when they see you typing in their Wavelet or blip. And everybody loves the fact that you easily can add someone to a wave. They are getting it and seeing the potential. And then they went back to their email because all their friends are on email. They were asking where the interface with ‘normal’ email was. Which indeed raises the question how Google Wave will content with the old email in the future. Something has to give in the interaction. And I don’t think that it can remain a closed garden.
