hahah, I just had to share this with you….
Is this the new Google phone booting? The Nexus One
Sweet animation :)
I guess this video explains what exactly Google Wave is better than anything…
Ok, I got into the preview ;-) Great!
Now that I have wave I’m still trying to figure out what exactly to do with it, lol. Seems like a great tool to work together with co-workers on the same project, sharing information and having threaded discussions – but they are called waves.
Wave has plug-in/gadget support and for now there are two plug-ins/gadget:
1. Yes/No/Maybe voting – can be very useful if you need a project/team wide decision.
2. Google maps – you can add your own points and locations to the map and share it with the participants.
A few more points that are worth mentioning:
1. Google wave is a web app – no download and all your data is saved in the cloud
2. Its simple and minimalistic
3. Participants can create and save searches – can be pretty useful if you use tags for projects, resources,…
4. In the help section it says that mobile surfing is not yet functional and when I tried to access wave from my android phone, I got a message that the browser is not yet supported :(. Once this can be accessed and be used from the mobile phone – project management can go with you to everywhere!
5. I’d love to see some more plug-ins, allowing you to connect to the calendar, to facebook, twitter…
So far I like it and I believe that Google wave might become a big success!
