Google kills Google Wave!!!

Finally, it is official. Google says that they will stop active development in Google Wave - which earlier they thought would change the way people communicate in the internet.

"Wave has not seen the user adoption we would have liked."

"We don’t plan to continue developing Wave as a standalone product"
"....extend the technology for use in other Google projects."

Honestly, I wasn't excited about using Google Wave at all - though in bits and pieces it was good, but it wasn't useful to me anywhere. Instead of projecting it as a stand-alone product, if it was established as a protocol, I think it might have been a good alternative to email.

I hope as they had mentioned, the good bits and pieces of Google Wave will be more useful after being part of other Google projects.
