So I'm playing with Google Wave...

Assuming it doesn't crash and burn because nobody gets it (and I barely get it), it's going to be a hell of a service once it matures. It has some real potential to be a serious productivity and collaboration aid (and/or a total time-sink like Facebook).

At the moment it's seriously lacking in a lot of areas.

It needs better contact management and categorization, and perhaps a method for blocking undesirable contacts. Right now things are manageable, but that will change over time.

It needs an update notification system. Scheduled email summaries, IM integration, something.

It needs output services. I built a trip using "trippy" (which is a pretty cool and useful extension, by the way) but I've got no way to output it (other than a screen print).

Actually, if you hit the "trip actions" pulldown there are options to print from trippy or to export.

Did you submit your "findings" to googlewave? I think this is the kind of info they're looking for.

I would like to be able to know if someone on my "list" is online or not. Maybe it tells you and I just don't know/understand how to read it.

Little green dot on the person's picture shows you they're online.
