Surprised? You shouldn’t be! The Techland team has been using Wave since October and many of us are still confused about what it’s supposed to do. Looks like we’re not in the minority.
“…Wave has not seen the user adoption we would have liked. We don’t plan to continue developing Wave as a standalone product, but we will maintain the site at least through the end of the year and extend the technology for use in other Google projects. The central parts of the code, as well as the protocols that have driven many of Wave’s innovations, like drag-and-drop and character-by-character live typing, are already available as open source, so customers and partners can continue the innovation we began.”
I guess we’re going to have to pay for Campfire.
