Making a big splash ...

All the buzz has been about wave recently.

The really smart bit can be gleamed from their statement to "help potential wave providers get started, our plan is to release an open source, production-quality, reference implementation of the Google Wave client and server, as well as provide an open federation endpoint by the time users start getting access.".

Oh, why oh why didn't they do that with Google AppEngine?

Fully agree with you. I gave a talk at the Oxford Geek Night and my argument was that until there are alternative options for running App Engine Applications, Google will not get serious business use of their platform.

A big splash indeed. I can help you with reflection paper writing later. Call me.
