Wave Hello (I Hope)

I did finally get my Google Wave invite the other day (I don't remember if I mentioned it here or not). And now I'm stuck with the task of trying to contrive a use for it.


Don't get me wrong, it's really cool, and it's really powerful. Watching the Google demos makes it look really, truly exciting. But watching the Google employees show how they use Wave brings to light a major, major flaw with Wave.

It's designed to be used by smart people. Google's developers and product managers are pretty smart. Most internet users. Not so much.

Wave would be so useful when working in a big company on multiple projects that you have to keep lots of various people up to speed on (like my aunt would get a ton of use out of it), but for those of us who work in small companies and only talk with like one or two people, Wave isn't really necessary.
