Google Wave: Thoughts after an hour of testing

by cinta5 on October 1, 2009

I was fortunate enough to be 1 of the 100,000. Here’s what I took away from an hour of testing Google Wave.

  • Gadgets are fun, but the Extensions are going to be where it’s at.

Right now “settings” is under construction, so I wasn’t allowed to add extensions. But to see demos of a few, check out http://wave.google.com/help/wave/extensions.html One of the featured extensions on that link is conference calling within the wave.

  • Playback is awesome.

Basically, the wave keeps track of when something was added or removed.  Playback allows you to see when this was done.

  • Google Wave will be great for collaborating and brainstorming.

It was kind of weird being able to see Jesse type something and then hit backspace to change whatever he was typing, but I guess that’s real time for ya.  Brainstorming using Google Wave is going to be awesome.  I’m sure there will be extensions that will enhance this.

That’s about all I have for now, started to get tired.  Let me know if you run into anything while testing that’s cool!
