Google Buzz re-invents Gmail

You can begin to see where all this is going: the integration of Gmail, Buzz, Reader, Voice, Geo, Blogger, YouTube, Calendar, Contacts… Buzz is a game-changing first step, but when you think about where Google will take this over the next year it gets exciting.

Spot on (as always). This is much more about the integration/api than Buzz as a product in itself…

Don’t cross the streams!

Is not importing his twitter feed in buzz. Don’t cross the streams, it’s bad.

Dr. Egon Spengler: There’s something very important I forgot to tell you.
Dr. Peter Venkman: What?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?
Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I’m a little fuzzy on the whole “good/bad” thing here. What do you mean, “bad”?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Dr. Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal!
Dr. Peter Venkman: That’s bad. Okay. All right, important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

“Imagine every tweet ever written exploding at the speed of light.” “Total social media reversal…” “Right, that’s bad.”
