Google Wave

Got my Google Wave invite today. Wave is a “personal communication and collaboration tool” developed by Google. It is a web based application which can be used for real time communication, has a robust spelling/grammar check feature and lots more. But, the preview is limited.

Developed using OpenJDK and based on the Wave Federation Protocol, Wave also boasts of providing seamless and real-time access to messages, e-mail, chat and the likes. It has support for social networking sites too. To top it all, Wave is open source. Google has planned to make the code available to the public, so that Wave can be customized to  an organization/individual’s needs.

Unless your friends/colleagues have permission to access Google Wave, it would be boring. 😦 You can request for a Wave invite here.

Here’s a screenshot of Google Wave on my PC.

For those who have an invite, Happy Waving 🙂 Have fun people 🙂
