Google Wave

Its been more than a year since Google’s “community collaboration” tool Google Wave was launched at the 2009 I/O conference and people were waiting for invites to join it. Now the google has decided to shut down the service due to very low adoption rate.

The service will not shut down completely for now, the account would still be accessible and Google has reaffirmed that the service would be running through the end of the year. They have also that technology used in the Wave would be integrated into other Google projects. Existing users can easily ‘liberate’ their content from Wave.

Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt said that the failure of Google Wave is just the failure of an experiment. “Remember, we celebrate our failures. This is a company where it’s absolutely OK to try something that’s very hard, have it not be successful, and take the learning from that.”
