Have another look at the from field? It tells how serious google was about this project at its end. I am a bit sad as this project had a lot of potential and was way ahead of current times. It just needed more attention and presentation from google. At times they should have stopped thinking like a geek and started thinking like a little child. I believe google has made a wrong decision in not giving google wave its due share. It reminds me of the wrong decision Google took in not giving importance to orkut and creating google plus a few years later. I remember describing facebook as a new orkut to a friend when I created by facebook account.
