Google wave is a new service just introduced minutes ago at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco. It is a tool that combines email and
messaging, with Google's Wave keeping track of conversations. Each individual conversation is called a 'wave'. The application allows tagging to
help you keep track of all your waves.
It tends to transmit character by character, rather than by typing a sentence and then transmitting it. The conversation speeds up considerably.
It has a feature that allows you to bring in a new users immediately; they can replay the conversation up to that point. Compare it to email, where it
can be difficult to bring in a new party to a long set of emails.
Sounds like Google wants a piece of the Twitter action.
