Google Wave - What will you use it for?

So I have been hearing about this upcoming Google Wave, that it's going to be the next "thing", that it will be revolutionary. It is now in "limited preview" release, a small number of invitations have gone out for people to try it. I signed up on the website and eventually when it goes out to wider release, I'll get my invitation. The original video about Google Wave was 80 minutes, so I never got around to watching it... but today I found a nice little 8 minute video.

WOW this is incredible... and it answers a question I have had at the back of my mind. I have really been wanting to try to start some sort of an online Bible Study... but I couldn't quite figure out how to make it work. I think this would be the perfect tool, as it would allow discussion and interaction in a way that a usual style chat room would not. I'm also excited to see that it can be added to a blog. That could be really interesting.

So - are you interested in Google Wave? What might you use it for?

If you're interested in Google Wave, Here is where you can register for an invitation... from what I hear it's a really long list.... but eventually they'll get capacity up to be able to accommodate all of us.

Here is a link where you can go see the Loooong Video & a few others.

Oh my goodness - that is incredible! The instant language translation was really impressive.

Thanks for sharing because I had not heard of Google Wave.

Thanks for posting this, April. I had been wondering what this was all about, but I didn't want to watch the marathon video. It's pretty amazing!
