Google Wave

What do you all think of Google wave? Also, is anyone in the beta? I just got in, and I am looking for people to add so I can mess around with it.

If that's too long for you, this video shows a lot of the main shit in like 10 mins.

Interesting Overview- I hadn't seen that one, and have only sat through bits and pieces of the developer's version.

Send a message via AIM to squeek.
It only seems useful if everyone you know is capable of using it. A closed beta makes the opposite true.

Here's my impression of Google and its Wave: We made an awesome two-player game! Only one person is allowed to play at a time.

I don't really see it being used much except by corporations or teams. The translate feature is cool, but I doubt very accurate.

I could see it's potential branching out to online communities for sure, but I don't see it becoming the next big social networking medium or anything.

I'm still waiting on my invite from Google...

I think that Wave will be mostly a collboration tool of sorts. It could be very useful in projects to centralize documentation in one place. It may turn into some form of IM/online communities as well, though.

It will be excellent when everyone is using it and I truly see it as a new up to date replacement for email.

The problem is will everyone use it? Who knows..

It's value decreases every time one of your friends refuses to adopt it.

Right now the best thing they can do is get it finished and publicly available as the more people you know who use it, the better it becomes.

I don't see why anyone would want to use emails instead of this in the future (give it 5 years). What's the advantage of emails over waves??

In fact, this looks just like the 2.0 version of emails. I believe it's gonna replace them completely.

I would love an invite if anyone got one!

It's not as cool (yet) as their bigass video shows. I have 7 invites left for anyone that wants one (PM me).

cjeshjoir was kind enough to send me an invite. If anyone else has gotten Wave, PM me for my Wave ID and we can Wave it up.

Do you have it and just need people to Wave with, or do you need an invite?
