Hey folks, Our Man's bleeding edge, doncha know. Not only has he recently discovered Delicious.com where he can have his very own virtual library, but he just went and got himself co-opted into the Google Wave machine. ? you might well be thinking. Well, Our Man isn't sure (as usual) but he reckons it is Google's latest plan to take over the world. It seems to be Facebook on steroids. You can chat and post videos and such with your contacts, but all in real time.
While Our Man can't work out all the permutations, he realised how few real friends he has, and the prospect of sharing a Wave with folk he barely knows, made him feel kind of, well, too old for this game. Still, surf on you early adopters, no doubt Our Man will rejoin the wave when it has become comfortably old hat.
BTW, what's with the super-duper re-tweet button on Twitter? It doesn't retweet the tweet on your own feed and doesn't allow you to comment on the re-tweet, which is half the fun. EDITED FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE - Just found the re-tweet does appear on your own feed, just an hour after you've retweeted it.
BTW 2.0: If none of this post has made the slightest bit of sense to you, Our Man congratulates you. You pass.
