    Google Wave - How can eCommerce benefit?

    I just watched the hour long presentation about Google Wave and I must say it blew me away. I'm already trying to figure out a way to use it for an eCommerce site (which sells tangible goods) Let's generate some ideas because right now I don't have any!

    Wave is neat, but I don't see anything about it that sticks out as a benefit to eCommerce sites. And as it is right now, it seems to be barely holding together. Very much a developer preview, not even ready for the "beta" label.

    If you want to add synchronous/asynchronous discussion to an ecommerce site, to use as a support forum example, you can already embed a Tangler forum, which I've done for a few years. It supports both threaded discussion and IM-like real-time discussion, and like Wave, the accounts are not tied to a specific forum but to Tangler, so each user can be participating in discussions at all different websites.

    Yes, just like you'd need to be a member of Wave to participate

    Tangler signup is 3 boxes: name, email, password
