More of a Ripple than a Wave

This week, Mashable wrote a post suggesting Google Wave is changing the news. Case studies like this get me excited but so far I haven’t been able to put Wave to the test. And those who claim to leave me feeling a little dubious.

Google’s chosen structure of launching it’s innovations through an invite system has worked in the past. When Gmail launched I was able to gloat to the straglers left with Hotmail, whilst experiencing it’s wealth of features.

With Wave, other than some hassle from invite chasers, I’m left feeling lonely and ultimately quite bored. Whilst I’m not quite ready to abandon Google, I do hope it reconsiders it’s strategy for future launches.

When the next Google bomb explodes into our lives, I don’t want to be waving goodbye.
