It all started with a bet.
Will Google Wave in 5 years time reach a market penetration of 40%.
It’s my view that yes Google Wave is a future for the way we communicate digitally. But it will not be as ubiquitous as email is now. Yes it will be used by the digerati but for the general user I think it’s to demanding. Maybe I’m wrong and Google Wave will replace everyone’s email client.
Hopefully you can customize it in such a way that you can immerse yourself to exactly the level of interaction you will be happy with. Any which way. The bottle of champagne will still taste wonderful.
