Google Wave Search Screen

Google Plus is here. Whatever happened to Google Wave?

Maybe it’s just me, but I find this funny. I’ve been looking at Google Wave, Buzz and Plus, trying to analyze what Google did right and what they did wrong with each application and product launch, what they learned, and how that informed or impacted the successive applications.

I noticed that Google’s corporate timeline makes a nice cutoff at January-February 2009, prior to its release of Wave in Mid to late 2009, and Buzz in early 2010.  Trying to see if this was just a glitch, I did a search on Wave.

Umm, yeah, okay, I suppose I’d want to forget that one, too.
