Google Wave taken off life support

Google Wave Flatlined

We knew the day was coming. Ever since Google announced the discontinuation of the failed social media… something… that they launched 3 years ago, the hundreds of avid users were given ample time to collect their virtual belongings and move them elsewhere. Posts were frozen in January, two months after the announcement of the terminal condition of… something… that kept Wave from picking up steam, and now the site is officially going completely dark.

If any of the dozens of people who were using it regularly are reading this, move your content now or lose it forever. The tubes have been pulled and the site will officially cease to exist today.

Or will it? The Apache Software Foundation took matters into their own hands and have been developing Wave for… something… since 2010. You can find it at Wave in a Box.

What do you think?
