Google Wave Pulp Fiction
Megan McArdle points me to this amusing video about which Gizmodo’s John Herrmann gushes, “I’ve read the articles, watched the instructional videos, and gotten an invite, but nothing—nothing—has done more to explain to me how this mind-melting Internet Thing works than Pulp Fiction, spectacularly adapted for Google Wave. (Warning: Tarantino language ahead)”
It’s an entertaining illustration but, frankly, not one that makes me pine for an invite. Yes, Wave would seem to combine several existing tools in a streamlined way. And it might be extraordinarily useful way of doing certain kinds of collaborative work. Mostly, though, it looks like a big time-waster.
