Google Wave Being Developed Into a Fully Functional Application


Google Wave may not have lasted long as an official web app, but the search giant announced today that it intends to use the existing code to design a fully functional application that can be hosted by anyone who wants it. The service will lose its integration with Gmail, but will still give active Wave participants a place to use and modify new and existing Wave’s after the service shuts down at the end of the year.

In many ways Wave might stand a better chance of reaching its full potential as a community open source project than as a neglected Google product. At the very least it takes the sting away from those who used the service extensively before they 
found out it was being given the axe.
