I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but man do I love Google. I don’t know if librarians are allowed to, but what the heck. I just do. I love all their apps, I love their services, and I just love how connected Google allows me to stay with the rest of the world.
So when Google announced Wave, I was very giddy. “THIS WILL CHANGE THE WORLD IMMEDIATELY!” and other important things were said. I got my invite and I rejoiced! Lots of other librarians rejoiced as they got invited as well! Things were great!
And then we got into it. It was slow. And weird. And clunky. I checked Wave every day to see what was going on. Things got slower with time. Less waves were being updated. I lost interest.
Now, I may log onto Wave once, maybe twice a week, browse for a moment and then log off.
What do you think about Wave? Did you get into it or did you have an experience like mine? Do you think this is just a temporary thing? Part of the learning curve? Do you think Wave will fully reach it’s potential or do we have a Google Dud on our hands?
