Google Wave Applications

By , October 20, 2009 10:54 am

As Jeff and I were thinking about ways to integrate Google Wave on Wixity, we really couldn’t think of a totally awesome way to use it within our platform.  Everything that we came up seemed like a feeble attempt to integrate the next best thing, without really knowing whether it was the next best thing.

Luckily, our distraction only lasted a few hours, and we didn’t get down the path of playing in the Wave Sandbox without a decent plastic shovel or florescent colored pale.  Sometimes, trying to be early and ride the hype wave really doesn’t make sense when you think about the overall concept of what you are building.  Maybe somewhere down the road we’ll find a cool way to use it, but for now we’ll stick with developing things we know people want, not things we think people may want to play with for the novelty factor.

One place where I saw a fun use of Google Wave came from Tim Kane’s blog, daily dares.  It’s one of the more interesting mash-ups I’ve seen, but not as good as Chinese Backstreet Boys – That Way.
