berkun on wave and kin

Scott Berkun blogs about the lessons from Google Wave and MSFT Kin. The snark in me loved his line about Wave -- "As a rule, any software in this century that reinvents the scroll bar deserves to fail" -- but it's depressing to think that the Kin team won't even get a postmortem. As Scott writes, "the lessons of Kin will likely die with Kin."

Also, a belated congratulations to Scott on joining Automattic -- they're lucky to have him and I look forward to seeing the impact he has on and the company as a whole. Good stuff!
