Excerpt from a Wave update/interview:
WSJ: How many people at Google are working on Wave?
Rasmussen: We’re about 60 people, mostly down here [ in Australia]. Wave is also an organizational experiment. We’re trying to set up as more of a startup.
WSJ: Are there things that people don’t understand about Wave?
Rasmussen: I think probably the biggest question mark people put next to Wave is whether it’s going to be too complicated for people to adopt on a wide scale. We don’t know that. It’s a little bit of a mouthful.
