If only as a developer preview, Google on Thursday revealed what it’s billing as “the email of the future.”
Named Google Wave, the experimental project is the result of a multiyear initiative to reinvent digital communication by blending e-mail, instant messaging, and content sharing into something resembling a cross between Twitter, Facebook, and your standard email platform.
Google Wave, which is expected to be released later this year, will “combine conversation-type communication and collaboration-type communication,” Lars Rasmussen, a software engineering manager at Google and the project’s co-founder, said during the Google I/O conference on Thursday.
Here we sit at another chemo treatment – the third. I pray my mom does as well this go round as she did the last. Please put her on your prayer list for this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Those will most likely be her worse days.
She’s gotten so creative with her beautiful head ware that I’ve decided to take a pic of her in each different one over the coming months and make a book of the photos at the end of treatment 🙂
If everything goes well she should be finished with all of the chemo by the end of October and have some hair growing back by Christmas. What a Christmas present!
It happens time and time again: when news breaks, the Internet slows.
It’s quite obvious at this point that the Internet has muscled its way into the lives of anyone who needs information. And Michael Jackson’s death Thursday had as great an impact on the Internet as anything in the history of the medium that didn’t involve the World Trade Center.
