  • The coming of Wave has me most intrigued, as it may represent an entirely new paradigm (as did Twitter) or could be one of many ‘flash in the pan’ ideas that never takes hold…only time will tell…but it does have the feel of something very futuristic.

  • Thanks, Global Patriot – I definitely agree! There’s enough scent in the air about it that I think many, many people are eager to try it out but only time, as you say, will tell…or, early adopter response 🙂

    Look forward to hearing what you think of it when that day comes!
