I was reading about Google Wave, and it sounds intriguing, particularly since my wife speaks so many languages. She would be able to spot check the instant language translators.


Is anyone here invited into it yet? It is invitation only, just like gmail was at first...

I have, I've used it only a bit and I don't quite get the appeal yet.

I have it, but it's largely useless without friends/co-workers who are using it with you so I haven't done anything with it yet.

I have an invite but haven't gotten around to trying it out yet. My friends who have been on it have both good and bad things to say about it. when I get around to it I'll post back in this thread!

I will send it. I have Wave but haven't used it yet because I don't have any projects to work on with anyone.

I have it and have invited some friends to Wave with me. If you're engaged enough it really is better than email.

I asked a friend for an invite and didn't get one- can someone send one to Lloyd dot Waldo - a gmail address? That's my business address.

I spent a few days unsure what I was supposed to do with it, but finally got started on a project with some friends. There's a large chunk of a roleplaying system we're developing that I haven't had time to flesh out, and I just posted all the pieces of it that need finishing in a wave, so we can all add suggestions and revisions as necessary.

I'd really like to try google wave as well. If anyone can send an invite is "sneakoscope AT gmail DOT com", I would appreciate it very much. The introduction video I saw of it on google has thoroughly seduced me.

Though this is the second time I've pulled myself out of lurkdom to ask for something here. The first time was for a Gmail invite (for which I used to create that account, yes). I am shameless. [Wink]

I just got an invitation to it, I still don't have anyone to wave with, so I'm not quite sure what I think of it.

Is there a hatrack wave yet?

I think some have called it a solution in search of a problem, I can't say I'm unsympathetic to that.

I'm on the hatrack wave (that mucus started) right now by the way, and I invited everyone who posted as having a wave account (and posted the email with which they have it) in this thread to that wave.

I'm hanging out in the hatrack wave still. If people post their wave addies I'd be happy to add them to the wave.

Thanks guys! Neither has shown up yet, but I'll keep you posted. Since you both sent one, is it possible to return one of them so you can give it to someone else?

I'm not really sure I have any use for Wave, but I'd be interested in giving it a try, should anybody happen to have a spare invite. (My e-mail address is in my profile here.)

Edited to note that no, it wasn't. Huh. Could've sworn it was... well, anyway, fixed now.

After using it a bit, my opinion is that there's no particular advantage to google wave unless you're genuinely trying to collaborate on something. If you're just talking, there's already forums and e-mail and facebook that work just fine.

I suddenly am having an issue where I'll be typing in a wave, and suddenly it'll be loading a the next wave in my inbox. I'm not sure if I'm pressing a hotkey or if it's just a bug or both. Anyone know what's up.

And I'm in! As "Shmuel". (No doubt this means that in addition to getting e-mail meant for every other Shmuel in the universe, I will now also get waves meant for every other Shmuel in the universe. And there are a lot of us.)

I just got wave, but none of my friends are interested in playing around with it with me.
I'm tieresia@googlewave.com if you could add me to the Hatrack wave, that'd be great. I'd like to see how well it functions in a group. Thanks!
