Google Wave Update: Theory vs. Reality

I’ve had my Google Wave account for just over six weeks now. I posted asking for your contacts so us Reformed folk could connect. Despite not wanting to feel like this about Google Wave (I had high expectations), at the moment I’m left agreeing with Steve Rubel who asked, “What problem does it solve?”

Earlier today Jason Smathers tweeted the following graphic which I think sums up Google Wave ‘in theory vs. in reality’ rather nicely.

In all honesty, I think there is potential for Google Wave and I look forward to seeing what the future brings for it. Presently though, I log-in about once a week for less than a few minutes. Don’t sweat if you don’t have an invite yet.
