Ray Ozzie's cloud hangs over the Valley | Beyond Binary - CNET News

In the question-and-answer period, Ozzie was asked for his thoughts on Google Wave, the company's recently introduced tool for combined collaboration and messaging.

He praised Google for taking on a big task, but also took issue with their approach saying it is "anti-Web."

"As a system, I think the complexity is an issue," Ozzie said. "The problem, the way the defined it is a complex one."

"I hope we learn, as an industry, an awful lot from Wave," Ozzie said.
