I'm less disappointed in the Wave technology than the way educators are reacting to it. 90% of the waves are see are waves about waves. People are mostly using it as some sort of river of stream free form conversation, that is in end, no different than other technology forms from listservs to twitter. I really don't see much use of the real time collaboration.

I'm disappointed in crap pieces that put if wafer thin articles on things like "Wave as the future LMS."

I'm disappointed that people are harping on the shortcomings of the current *interface* which is not Wave, but the first implementation of wave. Wave is what is underneath, and you've been at least one who is saying, "wait for the apps". It's the same as criticizing the first text web browser (which was not so great to use, I remember) but the foundation of the underlying HTTP protocol and the HTML construct of content.

I cant be "disappointed" in Wave cause I dont think I've really seen much of it, being a lot of meaningless froth on the surface.

And hey, while I am spraying around, I'm disappointed if you go to only short blog link shares! C'mon, the long form of the blog e.g. anything being 140 characters of "this is cool") is the analysis layer we need. Go long(er), brother!

I hear you. I think it'll emerge soon enough, but it isn't quite obvious yet. I'd really like to give some of the ideas presented above a try in a real classroom ... if the Wave is more open by Spring I'll see if we can use it my CI 597 course.

As far as long v short form, I don't see myself giving up the long form at all -- just being more open to drop shorter items into this space to help me keep track of them over the long haul.

I took a first swipe at working with a student last week.

It wasn't bad since he was happier than I to enrich it.

I can see my end getting pretty messy. Other than that, I'm definitely going to use it more often.
