"Catching the Wave" begins

For the past couple of weeks, I've had a major back-burner project simmering. Since Google Wave is the nearest I've seen so far to a realization of the ideas underlying CommYou, I and a bunch of friends have been working up an extensive examination and critique of Wave: both the theory of where it's going and the practice of Google's initial version. As of today, I'm starting to post it in my professional blog, The Art of Conversation. I'll be posting the series in little bite-sized chunks, theoretically one every weekday for the next few weeks. (I don't know exactly how long it'll be, but there's over a week written so far, and we're still warming up.)

Frankly, this is a topic that I'm deeply passionate about, so I'm going to be encouraging folks to check it out. So I'll be posting pointers from here to there as I post the series. I'd love to have more people getting involved in the discussion, so come join in over there and spread the word.

So to begin with: Catching the Wave: Prologue.
