Right, I Really Want More Email

February 10, 2010 20:13:56.847

Jason Calacanis believes that Google Buzz is the next big thing, and has cut the value of Facebook in half. Umm, right - just like Wave. Here's his theory:

Google Buzz is way faster than the sluggish Facebook -- this is a HUGE advantage.

Google Buzz puts relies and updates into your GMAIL as threads -- this is BRILLIANT and a HUGE advantage.

Right, because what most of us want is more stuff in our inbox. Sure Jason. You and the other three people who actually want more email can jump on the Buzz bandwagon - the rest of us will give it all the attention we gave Wave.

As to the whole "people don't trust Facebook because of privacy concerns" thing - the sad reality is that this is one of the few things that Scott McNealy got right - no one cares

His next theory is even crazier:

This really is game over for Facebook because you know Microsoft and Aol are going to copy Google Buzz as quick as they can. In fact, Aol would have a HUGE renaissance if they simply knocked off Google Buzz's exact feature set. You would than have a reason to keep your @aol email address.

Umm, yeah - because Microsoft has shown such an awesome ability to execute, and AOL has been the nimblest business around. And Google has shown such amazing staying power with any of their new things - Wave, anyone (crickets)?
