I have had a strong interest in Google Wave since May when it was unveiled. In fact, I wrote about Google Wave last month here on SeoHosting.com. At any rate, very early on, I had submitted my name and email address to use Google Wave. I just discovered that tomorrow Google will be issuing out over 100,000 invites. I hope that my name is pulled from this hat, because I will be very excited to use Google Wave.
Google Wave is an online tool used for real-time communication and collaboration among multiple people across the Internet that allows for simultaneous discussion and editing of rich formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. The wave is an equally a discussion as well as a document.
Users in the wave can communicate and work together at the same time. The reason why is because a wave is shared among users. A participant can reply or add remarks to a document, edit the contnet, and even add more people into the wave.
To keep things organized among users, a main feed playback is available so that others new into the wave can review the timeline. Another element is that a wave is always live. Even to the point where you can visibly see another user’s keystrokes as they’re being typed.
Google Wave will soon be used for blogging, wikis, message boards, traditional email, and even instant messenging. With Google Wave, all these older technologies will become mashed up into one. That said, Google Wave is not available to the general public. And tomorrow, over 100,000 people will receive an invite to use Google Wave.
I hope that my name is pulled from the hat. If you want to get your name pulled from the hat and score an invite to use Google Wave, I suggest that you watch the video presentation recorded back in May and then register your name and email address. Google Wave is something that you’re not going to want to miss out on. It’s powerful and it’s sure to change how people communicate and do things together online.
