RIP Google Wave: 2009-2010

When it was announced last year, all of us at The Tech Desk were pretty excited about the launch of Google Wave. Google Wave endeavoured to combine instant messaging, email, and sharing into a new real time collaboration tool.  However, Google Wave never achieved the audience that it hoped for. With this blog post on the Official Google Blog, Google is officially phasing out Wave at the end of the year.

Did you use Wave? What did you like or not like about it? Do you think it could have survived if it was not an invite only release for so long? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment.
