Google Wave

A friend invited me to start using the Beta version of Google Wave, and so far this it what I’ve found in Wave:

  • Email features
  • User forum features
  • Collaboration by sharing documents, photos, maps, etc.

I’m not sure how revolutionary any of these Wave features are, it kind of seems like a technology looking for a problem to solve.

There’s a familiar view of your Inbox and folders:

Waves are just messages and here’s my Inbox:

Messages can be like a Forum, plus you can go back and edit your message or even another person’s reply:

What I’d like to see in Wave is notification of when my messages have been updated.

I’m supposed to receive some Invites from Google this next week, so with those I can invite friends to join in the experiment.
