Google Wave

Oh! I remember now one of the things I wanted to post about earlier today but forgot about.

Does anyone on my flist want a Google Wave account? Or does anyone have a Wave account and want to add me as a contact?

It seems pretty cool, however there's not a lot you can do without having contacts, so if you'd like to talk to me and try to figure out this new fangled thing, send me a wave :)

Whaaaaaaat exactly is Wave for? I've seen it mentioned here and there, but haven't quite figured it out yet.

Wave is a new Google project that was designed with the idea of "what if we were inventing email today?" It allows for a lot more collaboration, and draws together a couple of their different product lines. For example you can use Google Docs through it, and share a document through wave. Wave will keep track of changes on a step by step level, so you can actually watch the evolution of a document like a movie, and be able to restore things easily from past incarnations.

It also allows for easy embedding of pictures, videos and even maps/directions from Google maps.

When I was watching their video where they show off the features, there was also mention of it working as a sort of RSS feed, so you can get all of that delivered right to your "email."

Also they have it open for sites to use, so you can have wave formats installed for comment sections on websites, offering a sort of universal ID.

Since it's still in the beta stage, there's a lot left to be developed, and the thing that sucks most for me is that you can only use it to contact others with wave accounts (it doesn't work as an email). It's kind of preventing me from playing with it as much.
