So, who's excited for GOOGLE WAAAAVE?? mush1a.gif

For those who don't know what that is: Google Wave is kind of inexplicable, but in a good way. I'm pretty sure that it runs on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and IE (if you add the Chrome framework to it). Google spokespeople described it as "what email would have looked like if it was invented now." And it is sort of like email-but improved. Users send "waves", or messages, to each other, which pile up in your inbox like regular emails. But how, Toaster, is this different, you may ask. Well, Waves don't just sit there. You and anyone you send a Wave to can edit that Wave by typing in it, putting in movies, games, polls, maps, pretty much anything. You see what the other person is typing as they type it. You can publish it to a blog or embed it in a website (where it can still be edited). Not only that, but Google is encouraging developers to write apps for Waves to make them do EVEN MORE. This Time article is where I got the info, and it explains it better: http://www.time.com/...1929231,00.html

I sent in a request for an invitation already. I can't wait to see if I get invited (I wrote a long message explaining why I should get it, etc.). Wave's scheduled to launch fully first half of 2010, but Gmail spent 5 years in beta...I'll probably be waiting for a long time to see if I was accepted or rejected for it. It looks pretty awesome right now, but I'll have to be able to try it out before I can really judge its quality.

Here's the keynote conference on it, too.
You can sign up for an invite here.
I'm checking my Gmail pretty much every waking moment of the day now.

Google Wave (Friend got me an invite YES~) = pretty awesome, even just for chatting purposes. At the moment it gets buggy occasionally, and uploads are a bit fishy, but it's it's neat.

I wouldn't bother checking too often. It could take months.

Looks cool, though. <:

I got my invite thing a couple weeks ago. Don't think I wrote very much on the signup sheet. Haven't used my acc much at all though.
