The workplace cannot afford further development in faster, more efficient communications. Human beings are not designed to work that way. I suggest you make every possible attempt to scuttle all attempts at implementing Google Wave, or any such real-time concept, at your workplace. In case you come by a Google Wave invite, DO NOT pass it on to the CEO or the IT heads. Instead sell it on eBay.
Or, even better, give it to me. I really could use one.
