We are still a few months away from the unbridled combination of Google Wave and Google's Open Social, but it can really make one's head spin with the possibilities. This could dramatically upgrade the entire social experience for Internet users since Google is creating a platform in social platform with Wave and so many developers are already working with Open Social.

Indianapolis is lucky because one of the great radio basketball announcers has made his career calling the games of the Indiana Pacers. His name is Mark Boyle, and it would be difficult to find anyone better at his craft. I’ve met Mark a couple of times, and he’s a great guy.
