Google Waves Goodbye
The much hyped Google Wave communication platform is to be scrapped by search giant Google. The company blog
has announced the user adoption of Wave was insufficient and it will no longer be developed as a standalone product.
Wave is expected to remain operational until the end of the year at minimum. However, Google points out that the core technologies used in Wave are are Open Source and this allows for other companies or communities to continue the project.
Elements of Wave may also appear in future Google products.
