Google Wave: You need to pay attention to this. - Jason Kolb re: the Future of the Internet

People have been talking about the Wave on Qaiku and Twitter. I didn't have time to bother with it before. A few minutes ago, I got this message from:

ymb . @digitalvillages @heleneauramo best explanation i have read so far is here - http://j.mp/M93E5

Who is vmb? Bio Mike Bradshaw, a European who is living in Finland & occasionally making technology "do stuff"(TM).


It looks like I've to jump on the band wagon.

Google Wave: You need to pay attention to this. - Jason Kolb re: the Future of the Internet: "Google Wave: You need to pay attention to this.

So here's the deal with Wave: If you deal in technology, and you get this one wrong, you'll miss the boat. And it's a big boat. If, on the other hand, you get this one right, you have the potential to do some incredible innovation.

In a nutshell, this is the next revolutionary leap in Internet application architecture. Maybe the first truly revolutionary leap since HTTP itself.

I've been wanting to write this post for a while, but first I wanted to read fully thru and digest the specs and available code. I haven't done any posts about XMPP for quite a while, but you're going to start hearing a whole lot about it, and not just from me.

What is it?

Ok so what exactly Google Wave is can be confusing, because there are three parts: the protocol, the server, and the client. A lot of people are really going to miss the boat here if they don't keep the distinction between the three in mind, because I see a lot of people focusing on the wrong parts."
