    It’s a real shame. The real-time multi-user apps supported by wave have a great future. We have a Google Wave travel-planner called “Travel WithMe”,
    and people love the real-time experience.

    People failed to understand the true meaning and use of Wave. It would have been a killer!

    Google Wave helped me tremendously with a school project where instead of my group meeting somewhere, we worked on the same document at any time we want (or at the same time :D)

    I will definitely miss it.

    I can’t agree more with Abhishek. And anonther reason why nobody really used it because google brought no attention to it. They could have put it on the google search frontpage, were they usually present new projects for users. I’m kind of dissapointed tbh, i really expected this to be a win! And just as Roi i also had great advantage of Wave on a schoolproject. I’m really gonna miss Wave, and i hope they come up with something similar in the future. Maybe there already are similar websites out there? I don’t know, but i would appreciate if someone told me in that case.

    Google wave needed a client. I was forever loosing it in all my other tabs. It needed a way to stand out
