    Oh wow.. from the looks of things at wave.google.com and waveprotocol.org they're not only trying to build a "better Twitter" they're actually trying to build a network of "mini Twitters" that all connect together and share data. It'll be interesting to see how it works out, right now it looks like it's a closed (invite only) beta, I went ahead and signed up for the waiting list.

    Twitter is dead? so is eBay, amazon, Myspace Facebook, hell the whole internet is dead!

    They're not dead, its just another Flavor of the month club

    Gives marketers an opportunity to overload the internet now with

    Wave is Hiring! Just type a few words make millions!
    I made $13,754 on Wave, you can too
    How I make $369 a day on wave

    At least Twitter's servers will get a break!

    Seriously though, Do you honestly believe the 9.7 million people on twitter are going to quit right now and jump over to wave?

    One thing is for sure, if the 4.5 million people that joined in the last 60 days, because of all the "You can make money on Twitter" hype would go to wave, it sure would be less "noisy" on Twitter!

    After watching the presentation I was very impressed with the instant send/response timing and the streamline effectiveness. Google certainly has a winner in its hands now can they accomplish it on a huge scale thats another chore! Twitter will def get some competition from wave just because people know the name "google" there are so many that have never heard of or know of "twitter" name recognition will drive wave!

    If Wave truly is a Twitter competitor, then it makes Twitter a more attractive acquisition target to the other players.

    But Twitter should have sold out when they had the chance. Someday they're going to unveil what their business model really is and everyone is going to say "That's it?"

    Social networking is the most powerful and fastest-growing entity of the Internet, so it's no surprise that Google is jumping on board with their own application. Plus, the most popular sites like Facebook and MySpace are all mirroring the Twitter layout and giving users the "What Are You Doing?" option right when they log in. Obviously it's what the people want.

    Google Wave looks like it's going to be a good system and the next big thing in social networking, and Google's releases normally help those involved with Internet marketing. So I say, the more the merrier! Looking forward to the release.

      I will be looking forward to maybe the first year or so of Google Wave. This seems to be the best time to be a part of something like this. I know a lot of people really benefited from Twitter when it first started, but it is getting a little harder these days to get quality traffic. SO many people have diluted Twitter with all of their spam and junk promotions that I refuse to click on any tweet links. I still do enjoy checking out peoples profiles and going to their listed website. A lot of junk, but some pretty interesting stuff as well.

      Signed up for wave. See you when it happens!

    I would be happy if they just changed the name

    If I read or hear the word...Twitter...one more time, I'm going to scream. For me, the word Twitter is like the word "space." Now that everyone's been watching HGTV and considers themselves a designer, I hear the word "space" constantly from the woman in my life...

    "I just love this space"

    "I love to fart in this space"

    "I Twitter and fart in this space"

    Ok...I'm going a bit too far. Clearly I need help

    uhm..you dont get the point i *think*.

    There is currently a trend, and this has to do with the future of the internet/web.

    Right now, we have 100s (1000s) of so called "social networks" and social sites/applications all splattered around the web. Dig, Facebook,IM, AIM, myspace,twitter,blogging,email, skype...and so forth.

    The trend is to *centralize* all those 1000s of spread out social gathering places into one single application. People do NOT want to visit 20 social networking sites, install 10 different IM apps, clients.

    So...read my lips:

    This is the future of the web.

    Whoever comes first gets the cheese. Google knows what they're doing.

    They are trying to commoditize social networks. That way, nobody has absolute control over a network.

    It's good for them. They don't want to be the flavor of the day social network. They just want access to all information that's inside them.

    George makes a good point, however I have no fear of something like this at all.

    What happens when you get 20 million using this thing?

    What happens when even 5 people try to have a discussion? From the video I saw what you would end up with is a cluster**** of messages that are completely unreadable.

    Believe it or not, most people still DO want a place where "everybody knows their name"...

    Private little 'coves' if you will, are not going to cease to exist because of google. They will actually become even more popular the more popular something like this becomes.

    So, kick back and drink a Mojito my friend, no worries on this little island..

      Yes, but will you be friends with all 20 million? You'll only get messages and what not from people you friend (or whatever they decide to call it)

      What happens when even 5 people try to have a discussion? From the video I saw what you would end up with is a cluster**** of messages that are completely unreadable.
      hmmm, a cluster of messages... kind of like a forum right? like the very thread we're reading right now?
