Plus One!

I’m loving Google+! So far, it seems very friendly, easy to use, and has many cool people! But a lot of people are comparing it to Google Wave, and these comparisons don’t apply because of one thing: Google Wave was supposed to be an email replacement, not a social network. The fact that people used it as a social network is one of the reasons for its failure, Expectations of the user base diverted from the initial project goal: to redesign email from the ground up. To count Wave as a failure as a social networking platform is to count Word as a failure as a spreadsheet application. Just sayin’...
