By Darryl Taft

Google Wave is a combination of e-mail, instant messaging, photo sharing and a lot more. In a blog post, Lars Rasmussen, a software engineering manager at Google and half of the core team whose original ideas led to both Google Maps and the new Wave technology, said his brother Jens convinced him that the future of communication should be the next concept for the team to conquer after maps.
