Google "There are countless pundits and other tech gurus describing Google Wave as a disappointment, lately. Most of that seems to come from the fact that nobody seems to get what Wave is for. So they compare it to social media. Is Wave the next Twitter? Nope. Is it the next Facebook? Nope. Is it going to replace Instant Messengers? Possibly, in some circumstances, but not any time soon."

They have said on several occasions they set out to create what email should be.

I really like the idea of it although I have yet to use it.

After watching the very long introduction to it I see emails floating around work that would be perfect for it.

The "who wants to go to lunch" email where you get 15 people replying at different times to different copies of the email. They had an example of that where you check yes, no, or maybe and it shows you everything.

Also, when you want to mark up someone else's email replying to different parts of it. This is fine, but when it gets done yet a 3rd time its no good.

If you think of it as an email replacement it should do really really well. You can't think of everything as the next XYZ killer. Every new phone isn't an Android killer, every new social network isn't a Facebook killer.
