Google Wave

Finally following up on my Google Wave invitation -- albeit with too much haste. Actually using it though will create some major disruptions to current habits, so I have to say, I am hesitating. Especially, as it seems to be the kind of 'thing' that needs mass behind it (that is, Google Wave will be very useful if virtually everyone you deal with is on it). And it is not yet clear if that will happen.
My mind roamed back to a time, in Tokyo, where I held some classes showing people how to use email. There was a good deal of angst, particularly in reference to privacy (and the realisation anyone could forward your emails to anyone else.)
Wave puts it even further out there.
Liking the 'robots' though - especially the blogger related one.
