Google Wave is Dead

It was announced yesterday that Google Wave will no longer be developed and will probably be shut down at the end of the year.

I would say I told you so, but I guess I didn't blog about it when it was launched and so I have nothing to prove that I thought it would fail.

So I will say this.  Amidst all the talk about it, I never knew quite what I was supposed to do with Google Wave and neither did any of my friends.  And I consider myself fairly tech savvy.  It just never really made my life easier or filled a need that I had.

So honestly, the announcement is no surprise.  Hopefully Google will keep creating useful things.  More useful than Wave.

Oh Google, when will you learn that social networking isn't your strongest suite? I wonder if the newest project that Google is working on will be up the the competitive par that Facebook holds currently...
