Google’s Wave is an attempt to solve genuine problems with both email and chat, creating a system that sits between the two. It has a big ambition, and works surprisingly well for some purposes. It is also very rough around the edges, but that is perhaps natural for a ‘preview’ release.

It will become significantly more useful when the performance is better, when it has more features, and when more people are using it.

With all its effort to fix problems with chat and email, the main benefit I have found in the past couple of weeks is in live joint editing of documents. I can see it becoming invaluable for things like event planning, menu planning, and meeting minutes.

I do a weekly shop with [personal profile] kateaw and [personal profile] qidane. For our last two shops, we have used Wave to create the shopping list over the course of the week, and then I’ve had it on my iPhone while wandering around Morrisons. It works surprisingly well. So Google have invented a useful shopping list system.
