Rather than forcing you into computer forensics, trying to figure who said what and when in an out of control e-mail chain, Google Wave has a handy playback function that lets you watch your Wave unfold in the order it unfolded. Hit the Playback button to see who said what and when and who responded to what and when. It's all very new Wave.

Unlike e-mail, with Google Wave people can see what you type as you type it. That flaming missive to your boss that feels good to write out but that you know should never be sent?
Google Waveis not the venue. You can mark a Wave as private or set a Wave such that only certain people can see certain things, but be aware: this is not the static email you're used to.

Rather than composing and sending a new message, Google Wave works because it allows you to create a
new discussion headerand get many people in on the chat. As you type, they see what you're saying. As they type, you see what they're saying. It's more like a real conversation than static email.

Google Wave is interesting for any one of a number of reasons. Unlike traditional email, you can add a person into a Wave at any point -- say when the conversation swings in such a way that you know a colleague who really should see what's happening to put her two-cents in the pot -- and he or she will see everything that's happened in the discussion thus far. No forwarding multiple emails. No wacky line breaks, just a clear record of the discussion to this point.
