I'm old enough to remember Altavista, Lycos and HotBot
I'm old enough to remember when Sketch supported punch cards
I actually worked on a punch card system when I was in the Air Force (network system administrator, '89-'93).
Took me years to move over to Google from HotBot (and this was after years of accidentally landing on Astalavista instead of Altavista).
AOL 2.5 and Geocities. Ah the days when private chatrooms, Methodus Toolz, punting, and 3-character screen names were cool.
Oh.. you bring memories. Just checked, and it turns out that my (almost) first website is STILL on tripod - and I have no idea how to access that account...
Why does Dan always say no to my barbecues?
Someone should contact Dan on Twitter and tell him that he is being talked about on DesignerNews!
I just spend a solid 30 minutes stalking Dan Kettering on Google search, I couldn't find anything, I'm assuming he was a fake user generated for the demo.
I'm so old I'm dead.
It ended in 2010. It wasn't that long ago.
Some senior product designers in the valley were born after that ..
I'm laughing so hard at this right now, cause it's so true!
This looks like a copy of Slack, except everyone can edit everyone else's messages. It even has buttons on messages. And bots.
It's weird, it's almost like Google Wave came first.
ha!! We had a conversation about that the other day. Sounds like Wave was just a little bit ahead of its time
Coming soon to Slack: asynchronous chat with people outside your office!
I miss it so much :(
Me too. :( It was surprisingly great.
I'm so old, I remember when Sketch was still called Drawit.
Joke aside, I do remember Wave and I used it a lot with a couple of friends. It's a shame that Google terminated it, I never really found that directness and fun of use in any other chat app since.
Trick question. No one remember's Google Wave because it sucked and died too fast to matter.
I'm so old, my first play about with HTML was in GeoCities and AOL was my ISP so Google Wave feels like yesterday
Google Wave wasn't that long ago. Was it? I was expecting something like remember the Palm Pilot or remember FutureSplash.
Google Wave was only 7 years ago.
It's all about dem waves bro.
Is anyone here under 10?
Absolutely I'm not too young!!
I do remember and I miss it dearly! It was a great tool, way ahead of its time. It’s a shame people didn’t get it.
TWEETY THE TWIT BOT. The OG chatbot.
The concept of Google Wave was awesome; I'd say even better than Slack. The huge downfall was the interaction because nothing was intuitive. I remember that pressing enter after typing a message didn't do what I thought it should have done.
I was just trying to organize something with a group of friends on email two weeks ago and said to myself - "I wish Google Wave was still here." I needed the ability to dynamically add someone to our chain and have them keep the whole history. Slack would have worked as well, but most of my friends haven't even heard of slack.
Actually I haven't heard of this before.
Second semester of college when I started using it for class. Lasted a few weeks then we dropped it especially after the privacy scandal.
Q: What do physicists enjoy doing the most at sporting events?
A: The Google Wave
Q: What did the Pacific Ocean say to the Atlantic Ocean?
A: Nothing, it just Google Waved.
Yo' Mama is so fat, every time you smack her butt, you can ride the Google Waves.
I miss the Safari 4 Beta with the tabs on the top! :/
I'm old enough to remember a time when the "Internet" was a bunch of BBS' that you had to connect with through an acoustic coupler.
What about the gals?
You're saying it as if it's 30 years old.
