Blogspot Vision invites you to Google Wave

google_wave_logo Subscribe by email to receive a Google Wave invite. Current email subscribers will receive an invite as well. What’s Google Wave? Google Wave is an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. Google Wave is currently open to invites only.

Ok? But what exactly is a wave?ss2

A wave is equal parts conversations and document
People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

A wave is shared
Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback allows anyone to rewind the wave to see who said what and when.

A wave is live
With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.

When and where is the use of Google Wave used? What can it bring to the table that current technology can’t?

Organizing events
Keep a single copy of ideas, suggested itinerary, menu and RSVPs, rather than using many different tools. Use gadgets to add weather, maps, and more to the event.

Group projects

Collaboratively work in real-time to draft content, discuss and solicit feedback all in one place, rather than sending email attachments and creating multiple copies that get out of sync.

photosharing Photo sharing
Drag and drop photos directly from your desktop into a wave. Share with others. Use the slideshow viewer. Everyone on the wave can add their photos, too. It is easy to make a group photo album in Google Wave.

Meeting notes
Prepare a meeting agenda together, share the burden of taking notes and record decisions so you all leave on the same page. Team members can follow the minutes in real-time, or review the history using Playback.

Bring lots of people into a wave to brainstorm – live concurrent editing makes the quantity of ideas grow quickly! It is easy to add rich content like videos, images, URLs, or even links to other waves. Discuss then work together to distill down the good ideas.

All work, no play = no fun. Of course, Google hooked up with Sudoku, so  you can play interactive games while or after work
Add a gadget to a wave to play live interactive games with your friends. See everyone’s moves as they make them in a fast paced game or take a break and come back later.

It's my pleasure. I've sent invites to all email subscribers, but keep in mind that this is a preview so it could be a bit rocky at times.

Invitations will not be sent immediately. Google has a lot of stamps to lick.

Happy waving!
