Google wave - now available for everyone!


After hearing the news that Google Wave is now available for everyone, I thought it would be good to revisit google wave in my blog. Visit the google blog from the link as there are links to specific uses of wave in education, an article on how to use wave, etc.

Hopefully, you will join the wave and find some waves that are of particular interest to you. Wave is a tool that allows real-time (chat like) and asynchronous collaboration to exist among members of a wave. It is similar to a wiki, but more of an ongoing conversation with links, images, resources, and built in widgets. It really is revolutionary in terms of Web 2.0 (perhaps 3.0) and will hopefully continue to evolve.

Join the wave!

You can search and add me as a contact (stevei2071@googlewave.com)

Steve,
Thanks for all the cool tools you have shared. And the new word of the year for me is "asynchronous". Excellent!

Steve--you help in ways you can't imagine. I've been trying to add a wave button to our union website and having no luck. I'm hoping I can copy yours--wish me luck!
