Over at Macworld this morning, I took a shot at explaining what Google Wave is (and isn’t). Even in a Wave-backlash/Buzz-love world, I’m still bullish about Wave. It’s the best collaboration webapp I’ve ever used. Once you’ve experienced inline replies in a wave with your group, you never want to email again.
Eventually, I see it as a Basecamp rival.
All that is missing is a few well-done plugins; a todo list creator (maybe Google Tasks), time tracking and Google calendar integration.
I stopped using Wave because of performance issues when waves get large.
