Google Wave may have hit low tide, but Portland’s contribution to the project is still a high watermark
As you may have heard via numerous sources—including the Goog itself—development has been halted on the cryptic and somewhat enigmatic Google Wave. It’s future? Likely sunsetting. Perhaps dedication to open source.
But what was Google Wave? That’s a question that had many of us scratching our heads. Some of us were still scratching our heads. And somehow “the second coming of Lotus Notes” didn’t quite do it justice. But you know what? A little video by a studio with a strong Portland presence did.
That studio was Epipheo Studios, whose Creative Director calls Portland home. And if you haven’t taken a chance to watch their excellent explanation of Google Wave, it’s well worth the two minutes. Trust me. Or trust the other 999,999 viewers.
