Wave

So almost my entire office is having a blast playing with Google Wave. The closest I can come to describing it is that it's IM on steroids and speed. It has the potential to be a great collaboration tool (or possibly time waster...) It really is a lot of fun getting to know my way around. It's still in testing so it's not perfect yet and it's not available without an invite.

That said, I have 6 invites left for this thing. If anyone wants an invite to Google Wave let me know. I'm willing to give away at least 4 of the invites here to whoever asks first. Just leave me a comment with your Gmail address and I'll get it sent to you.

Update: I actually now have 22 invites left. Let me know if you want one! :)

Sounds like fun. But, have no time to wave. hee, hee. I hope whoever you invite enjoys it.

I know this is a dumb question, But how or what is the game and how do you play it? Does that question make sense? I hope so!!!

I would love to be invited to wave. My email is talesfromthetower@gmail.com.

Gramma Ann-No problem :) It's kind of like an instant messenger program that lets you collaborate with multiple people. You can add in documents, pictures, maps, games, etc. You can edit live and even use voice and video chat. It has the potential to be a great collaboration tool.

Sarah Katie-Sent the invite, should be in your box soon!

I'll have Sarah Katie show me what it is all about.

Jaina said...

Gramma Ann-Sounds like a fun plan. I'll be interested in hearing what you think about it.

I'd like to try it. I never heard of it, but sounds like fun. cherylz@gmail.com I think that is it.

How are you doing? Are you on Facebook?

Let me know? I seem to be on there more than Blogger lately, just time, time, time.

Hope all is well with you and you family.

Wow!! I'll have to see if I can figure out what it is first, or else I'll start wasting too much time I'm sure... and I'm already trying to figure out where to get more time from!! Haha. :)

I'm kind of scared to get myself involved with something else! But, I'll take one if you still have any available.

Cheryl-Hey! You've probably seen it, but I sent you an invite over the weekend. As for Facebook, I have an account but I am rarely on it. I'm doing well though...just really busy right up until we leave Wednesday.

Tabitha-It's definitely easy to waste time on it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Wave Gives you a decent overview.

Momo-It's really fun! :) And I sent you an invite :)

I'm afraid of technology. Will it give me motion sickness?

Jaina said...

Trooper-The potential for motion sickness increases with the number of users in a single wave. But generally, no ;)
