Google Wave's Best Use Cases

Google Wave's Best Use Cases
@arekkusu82: Realistically, Wave is just a new implementation of an old idea. You can acheive much the same thing with SharePoint Discussion boards, or Microsoft Groove (which was developed by a different company before being gobbled up my Microsoft), or ShareFlow by zenbe. Wave is extensible, but so is SharePoint. Sure, the real time translation is pretty sweet, but all the "oooh, shiny" stuff in Wave are just features. The idea behind wave isn't anything groundbreaking...people just think it is because it's a Google project (Oooh!

Gmail in real-time: Google does the Wave Updated 12:28 p.m. PDT with additional comments from Google. Google is ready to start talking about its answer to demand for real-time--yet organized--Internet communication. Google on Thursday publicly demonstrated Google Wave for the first time at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco. Billed as "the e-mail of the future," Google Wave is the result of a multiyear project inside of Google to reinvent the inbox, blending e-mail, instant messaging, photo sharing, and perhaps, with input from developers, connections to the world of social networking. Google Wave is an attempt to "combine conversation-type communication and collaboration-type communication," said Lars Rasmussen, who launched the project with his brother Jens after Google acquired their mapping start-up in 2004.

Google Wave crashes on beach of overhype I just got my Google Wave invite. No, I’m already out, so I can’t send one to you, sorry. But this service is way overhyped and as people start to use it they will realize it brings the worst of email and IM together: unproductivity. See, the first thing you notice is that you can see people chatting live in Google Wave. That’s really cool if you are working on something together, like a spreadsheet or a Word document. But it’s a productivity sink if you are trying to just communicate with other people.

How Google Wave could transform journalism Google Wave lets users collaborate live on documents. The tech world is awash with excitement for today's scheduled release of 100,000 invitations to preview Google Wave. Seems like everyone is buzzing about how the collaborative Web tool will revolutionize how we do business, organize parties, manage projects with friends, cheat on homework and market brands (trust us, we've seen the news releases, plural).
