Huh. I was just beginning to explore Google Wave and now apparently it has already crashed on the lonely shore of Software User Indifference. But what will be the fate of Google Buzz? (Razib explores the question.)
At this time in my personal IT/Computer development Google Wave is the opposite of what I’ve been moving towards. I want documents that are plain text, marked up but preferably with minimal makrup. Google Wave scares me and annoys me and call me crazy but I’m not happy with a document that someone else can edit while I’m working on it. Not that there is not a place for such shenanigans, I just don’t see it replacing email and wikis for me. (In fact, wikis dont even replace wikis for me).
Check out Razib’s post for discussion on Buzz. The fact that it enhances/uses mail may be irrelevant to me because I scrape my email from gmail and read it with alpine, a text-based email client from the mid 20th century.
