Google Wave – Interesting if only as an e-mail / IM integration with branching conversations as a single object – effectively blurring email-list / forum / bulletin board with wiki / blog / twitter collaborative editing , linking and commenting on that common object. Not sure the simple switching of real-time typing and private branches is such a great idea and the simple “bloggie” publish – to make the whole object a public page, and thence pick-up blog / twitter responses and links into the same object – real extremes one click apart – powerful though.
