Google Wave Is Wikis 25 Years Later, Not Email
For the past 8 years I've been a great fan, user and evangelist of wikis

There has been much ado about Google Wave, for good reason.

I can't wait to play with it.

What is impressive is what you:

  • can do in an HTML5 app
  • get when you leverage the web knowledge like the Spelly extension does (a really really useful spell checker/corrector which I would love to have on my iPhone)
  • can do if you do P2P communications right.

For the past 8 years I've been a great fan, user and evangelist of wikis. Wave picks up the original idea from old-time Smalltalker Ward Cunningham and moves it 25 years into the present. Wave is what Ozzie's Groove always wanted to be, but Ozzie missed the Internet, so it found a good home with Microsoft. Wave is the Facebook for more closed groups, but also the MySpace for all the social stuff you want to share with your friends, but may be not with the world.

Wave is not a replacement for email, contact management, team-calendaring, enterprise content management - structured business stuff in general. But it's a great extension. Social collaboration with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and the likes has become already important for business. So will be more local, private social collaboration with Wave.

Wave will be a great extension to Open-Xchange. We deal with structured business data and with the integration of stuff from the Social Media sites into business, and the synchronisation of all business devices and tools for the stuff that we manage. We will integrate Wave to provide real time wiki features and exploit some of the cool plugins like Spelly or Linky.

Wave can also become the glue between the computer user generations. I am from the old email age, my children are the IM/Facebook kind. A combination of business class email and collaboration with Wave and Facebook etc. will glue the working styles of the two in the business world.

Wave is not next-gen email, it's next-gen wiki, it's your Facebook. With Open-Xchange it will be extended into business life.
