  3. 3. Will Wave Collapse?<br />Google Wave = next Google Mailor<br />Google Wave = next Google Knolor<br />Google Wave = next Google Orkut<br />
  4. 4. Direction the wind is blowing?<br />Google Wave the web app<br />Google Wave the protocol<br />Enabling applications to be collaboration-aware<br />Google Wave as HTML 5 pathfinder<br />And HTML 5 driver (e.g. Google Chrome)<br />
  5. 5. Message in a bottle<br />Explicitly described as reinvention of email<br />Google Wave as tool to solve internal Google communication challenges, based on data from Gmail & Gchat – from the Google Maps developers<br />Remember: engineers like efficiency<br />But also remember: inventors don’t necessarily know what they’ve invented… trying to see what the uses are and testing the limits of the system<br />
  6. 6. Treasure Beneath the Wave<br />Ideas from Google (Lars):<br />Ads<br />“almost certainly” add Wave to Enterprise bundle<br />APIs<br />The following is my wild speculation:<br />Google Wave as part of the Enterprise offer?<br />Undersea ecosystem? (Wave apps store.)<br />
  7. 7. First and Second Wave<br />1st round = 100,000 who each got 8 invites<br />2nd round therefore = 800,000 who currently have zero invites<br />You can request a regular account online<br />Go to wave.google.com and click “Request an invitation”<br />You can follow @googlewave , @twephanie and @larsras<br />

No Overlapping Waves<br />Developer’s Sandbox = WaveSandbox.com<br />“Please keep in mind that WaveSandbox.com does not currently interoperate with users on wave.google.com”<br />Separate form to request a developer account.<br />Preview = wave.google.com (pre-beta)<br />“much much more demand than capacity right now” - @twephanie, October 14, 2009<br />Their major major focus is scalability and stability.<br />Some of the features demoed in the sandbox are NOT available in the preview.<br />
  9. 9. Terminology<br />Wave = an entire discussion<br />Wavelet = subsection of a discussion<br />Blip = individual “post”<br />Extensions:<br />Robot = software that can join as a “member” of a wave and act upon the wave’s contents (e.g. Rosy Etta translator bot)<br />Gadget = “plug in” that you can add to a particular blip (e.g. Google Maps extension) – a further development of existing Google Gadgets<br />
