Yesterday Google announced a new product at it’s I/O conference- Google Wave.
What is Google Wave? As developer Lars Rasmussen says, it’s “what email would look like if it were invented today.”
That’s the short answer. The long answer is really really long and I’m told barely makes a dent in what Wave will eventually be offering.
The idea is to take your email and instant messaging providers and put it into one place. This may sound familiar, as apps like Digsby and the new Trillian Astraand even FriendFeed provide services like this. What sets Wave appart from the rest is online collaboration.
