Google Waves, I Falter

My love for Google is not a secret. I fawn over every new release and make cooing sounds when their name comes up in conversation. I voice chat, share pictures, stream music and frequently change my gmail skin.

So its with a tremulous heart that I come to discuss Google Wave. I've been mulling over it for almost a week (one hour videos take time to watch!) and am ready to declare myself a big fuddy duddy scared of new technology. Check out the YouTube video:

Google said "We set out to answer the question: What would email look like if we set out to invent it today?" and this is what they came up with. I admit responding within conversation is neat and having small sections within messages will be handy but I'm overwhelmed right now. Its like microsoft doc editing meets aim, meets a posting board meets flikr.

How will I ever learn how to utilize all these awesome features!?
