Well, I got an invite, and now I’m staring at an empty screen. I’ve sent a few “um, hi?” messages to some friends, and now I’m waiting for a reply. Google wave kind of reminds me of what I don’t like about skype (and video chatting). It dominates your time. So when I fire up a video chat, all my other productivity stuff stops while I talk.
I can see how google wave is sort of like a mix between IM and email, but to fully appreciate the “real-time-y-ness” of wave, I would have to schedule times to chat. I’m eager to get into a real discussion with someone so I can can understand wave better.
I like email because I can decide WHEN to respond to it. I don’t want Wave taking away my “when”.
