Google Wave is equal parts conversation and document, people can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. A wave is shared, any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when. A wave is live, with live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.
To get a little more into details of all, here is sort of compiled information and related links to the launch of Google Wave. The guide here below, provides an overview of Google Wave, discusses detailed information on Google Wave applications and goes over ways to get yourself informed. Many of us are excited about Google Wave, so here’s what we should know.
Google Wave is build as real-time communication platform. It combines aspects of email, instant messaging, chat, project management and social networking to build elegant communication platform. You can share files or discuss with a group of friends or business partners how was your business meeting, day or vacation trip.
In Google Wave you create a wave and add people to it. Everyone on your wave can use richly formatted text, photos, gadgets, and even feeds from other sources on the web. They can insert a reply or edit the wave directly. It’s concurrent rich-text editing, where you see on your screen nearly instantly what your fellow collaborators are typing in your wave. That means Google Wave is just as well suited for quick messages as for persistent content — it allows for both collaboration and communication.
Some more of the key features of Google Wave
> Real-time: In most instances, you can see what someone else is typing, character-by-character.
> Applications and Extensions: Just like a Facebook application or an iGoogle gadget, developers can build their own apps within waves. They can be anything from bots to complex real-time games.
> Drag-and-drop file sharing: No attachments; just drag your file and drop it inside Google Wave and everyone will have access.
> Wiki functionality: Anything written within a Google Wave can be edited by anyone else, because all conversations within the platform are shared. Thus, you can correct information, append information, or add your own commentary within a developing conversation.
> Embeddability: Waves can be embedded on any blog or website.
> Open source: The Google Wave code will be open source, to foster innovation and adoption amongst developers.
Meet Google Wave Protocol
Originaly by WaveProtocol ORG: This morning at Google I/O we are unveiling a developer preview of Google Wave, a new collaboration and communication product. Google Wave introduces a new platform built around hosted conversations called waves–this model enables people to communicate and work together in new and more effective ways. On top of that, with the Google Wabe Api’s, developers can take advantage of this collaborative system by building on the Google Wave platform. We want to expand upon that platform, which is why we’ve put together the initial draft of the Google Wave Federation Protocol, the underlying network protocol for sharing waves between wave providers.
Yes, that’s between wave providers: anyone can build a wave server and interoperate, much like anyone can run their own SMTP server. The wave protocol is open to contributions by the broader community with the goal to continue to improve how we share information, together. If you’re interested in getting involved, here are a few things you should check out on www.waveprotocol.org.
