Product managers, Stephanie and Greg explain many of the features of Google Wave. Learn more at http://wave.google.com Google Wave is "a personal communication and collaboration tool" announced by Google at the Google I/O conference on May 27, 2009. It is a web-based service, computing platform, and communications protocol designed to merge e-mail, instant messaging, wikis, and social networking. It has a strong collaborative and real-time focus supported by extensions that can provide, for example, robust spelling/grammar checking, automated translation between 40 languages, and numerous other extensions. Initially released only to developers, a "preview release" of Google Wave has been extended to about 600,000 users since September 30, 2009, with the initial 100,000 users each allowed to invite up to eight additional users.

Who needs email and other stuff when you have Google Wave? This is so awesome!

There's two ways to look at it.
Instant messaging is essentially faster email.
So email was downgraded when messenger came out.
But many still kept using it.
I think the same will happen with Wave, but it will degrade email and messenger.

Although, I also believe a lot of people are not going to use Wave, because they're already used to something, and often some people won't try new things because they like what they already have.

Me myself personally will try it out upon release, but I will most likely stick to email.

The way I look at it, is that I no longer have to go to different sites to do multiple things. I can email, blog, upload pics/stuff, chat, look for friends events, etc in one place. It will all be in Google Wave. And those robots, especially that translator "robot" Rosey, is full of pure win.

This seems amazing! Does anyone have any invites for it?
Just from that 8 minute video I was very impressed with what this should be able to do, can't wait to explore it for myself :)

I got an invite to use it from a friend and it is interesting. Not enough people on there to test drive it with but the only problem I have with it is the essentiality that I don't feel like what I type is "safe". I haven't test drived it enough but I did enjoy the seeing what I typed appear in the wave. That was certainly interesting. Overall, I will have a better view on it once more people are using it.

Edit: If you are already using Google Wave like me, PM me your contact info for it. Would like to start a possible Tip.it Wave if I knew enough people on it.

I don't like going to 20 different sites to do things.

Google Wave it is all integrated. When Wave is released to the general public, the other forty or so sites I visit to do 'things' will have something integrated to Wave, so I'll just need to open Wave and I complete all my social networking or other work, without having to load pages, or go through bookmarks or whatever. It's much more efficient and in some cases it has proven to be better than the UI or process in which you would do it on the actual sites. *Cough* Facebook*Cough*.

For business though, this will be an amazing piece of technology for them to use. Is definitely where the web is going to go.

And sorry guys, already used my 10 free handouts. :/

I can see it being useful for runescape related things such as organizing clan trips and crap. Tip.it could use it too.
wave.tip.it seems catchy.

I sent in an application for Google Wave testing. I hope I get to try it out!

Same.

This might be something of interest, seeing as google is still getting bigger despite how big they already are.

Indeed, their rate of growth is somewhat scary. :P

I got invited. Liked what I saw. The interface was nice, and i'm keen to open up Wave and do everything at once.

That's what put me off. Going to twenty different sites, like twitter, facebook and the like. Everything is nice and contained.

Def. be using it.

But Google Mail is so hot D=

I got a Gmail account a few years ago and I haven't looked back since. I'm interested in Wave, though I'll probably not use it really.
