Hate email? Remember Google Wave?

It’s that time of year again where everyone goes off on email. Fred Wilson does it here, and MG Siegler does it here. I quote from MG’s article here: The only real “solution” is to change the way people think about email. It needs to be considered more of a stream than an inbox. That is, it needs to be more like Twitter and less like a to-do list. As much as everyone hated Google Wave, it was ahead of it’s time in changing how email was used.
