Is it anything it's cracked up to be?

I enjoy the conversation format. I see myself using it as a primary form of electronic communication once it gets out of beta (or everyone I trade email with is invited).

It is a very quick and simple live collaboration tool with memory and history. Imagine an editable chatroom with the saveability of a Word document.

For the time being, Google Wave acts as little more than another inbox that I have to check. If there were some kind of notification system that came to *me* when a new comment or wave popped up, it might be another story, but as it stands, I simply have to remember to wonder if anybody has posted anything to me or for me in Google Wave. And with so few people on Google Wave, the answer is usually disappointing.

Very, very buggy at the moment and missing some very key features (like the ability to remove someone from a wave). I understand that they are diligently working on the project and it is very early on in the development cycle, but Google may have released this way too early, which may cause problems for its long term success.

Wave's credibility may be shot with all of the tech pundits complaining how half-baked it is and it will take considerable improvement to win over their hearts and minds when it is complete.
