Google Wave

On May 27, 2009 during the Google I/O keynote, Google announced it has developed a whole new model for communications and collaboration on the web called Google Wave. A "wave" is equal parts conversation and document, where people can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. Google's Lars Rasumussen claims, “Wave is what email would look like if it were invented today.”

Wave has attracted a tremendous amount of buzz in the industry. Techcrunch says Wave "makes both email and instant messaging look stale".

But not everyone is impressed by Google Wave: Fast Company cites 5 reasons why we should all be terrified of the new platform.
