I think the real problem was that nobody knew what to do with it. I was 
eager to get into the beta program; and did get an early invite - when I 
opened it up all I could think was "cool, what now"?

Always keep the Wave story in mind when making something cool and new with 
XMPP: people might not know what do with it. Something like a whiteboard 
(using SXE) works well because it guides people on collaborating together on 
a document using a medium/concept they are already familiar with. SXE itself 
is great because it's not restricted to whiteboards - which makes developers 
happy. Happy developers + happy users = great success!
