The primary reason I write a blog is to inform the everyday computer user. Just today I had an “everyday computer user” ask me, “What is Google Wave?”. Well, I was like, uh, hmmmm!, let me get back to you… I needed to do my homework on Google Wave.
To the everyday computer user, they are hearing about Google Wave via the news media and that Google Wave is currently in a limited preview via an invite. You can request an invite to Google Wave from [ here ]. At the present, it is my understanding that 100,000 invites were sent out and the people who received those invites can invite another (8)-eight people.
Ok, what is Google Wave all about?
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.
You can visit the official Google Wave site [ here ] .
To the everyday computer user, the description I provided probably did not help matters any. Ok, let’s try some YouTube videos. The first video is the Google Wave Developer Preview. If it seems too in-depth, definitely watch the second video. The person who created the second video put it all together for us in very simplistic terms (and pictures) that even I could understand. Enjoy!
