Once again, Google has everyone excited. The overwhelming buzz on Google’s Wave is incredible everyone is chattering about the new tsunami (Wave).  Google’s vision is remarkable, not only will it unify different types of online communication (e-mail, instant messaging, SMS) into one paradigm (wave), but they have also ensured that it can run fully distributed and can integrate with most of the things we already have. To understand what that means I urge you not to see Google Wave as a new service, but as a new service layer.

Whereas services like e-mail, instant messaging and social networks always have been built on the premise of a walledgarden business model, Google Wave can become the new communication structure that services can develop upon. It is set up from the start as an open source project with a clear focus on development APIs.

Google has not only spent time and energy making sure Wave can suck content into the platform, it has spent as much time and energy making sure it can get out too! Farewell destination based business models. Farewell walled gardens. If Wave gets adapted, it will put the user in control, and that is exactly what we need to do to break out of our current web 2.0 boundaries. That is what makes this development so remarkable.

Google just did some major plumbing on the web, and honestly, they were probably the only ones that could do this. – Read More
