A destination - rather than a stream
I came across a really interesting article the other day which spoke about the Google's failure (so far) to setup some kind of social platform. Obviously it's not like they have not tried. Systems such as buzz and wave were all dips into the arena, but as the article discusses it is the fact that they are trying to do something that has been done before.
What it has brought for me to think about is two things:
- Does a scatter gun approach to development work?
- Will Google be 2nd in a few years to facebook?
