Google has now come again with a new communication service Google Wave , an online personal tool for real-time communication and collaboration which has been designed by the founders of “Where 2 Tech”, a start-up acquired by Google to create a cutting-edge mapping service, which later became Google Maps.
The word “Wave” in Google stands for two things.“Conversation” and “Document” which means that the users can communicate and work all together with highly formatted text, photos, videos, maps and more. The wave can be shared anywhere and the participants can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. A playback option is also available through which anyone can rewind the wave and see who said what and when. In addition to this, the wave is live and when you type anything in live transmission, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, can see edits letter by letter, as they are typed by the other collaborators and interact with extension in real-time.
Google Wave, the new communication service was previewed by Google at the Google I/O. Gmail and Google Docs are being combined into an interesting free-form workspace that could be used to write documents collaboratively, plan events, play games or discuss recent news. Automated translation which includes 40 languages is also available.
Google Wave is written in Java using Open JDK and its web interface uses the Google Web Toolkit. Its works like previous messaging systems such as email and Usenet, but instead of sending a message along with its entire thread of previous messages, or requiring all responses to be stored in each user's inbox for context, message documents (referred to as waves) that contain complete threads of multimedia messages (blips). And also works as an instant messaging service when many participants are online at the same time. The ability to show messages as they are typed can be disabled, similar to conventional instant messaging.
It has also a platform with a rich set of open APIs that allow developers to embed waves in other web services and to build extensions that work inside waves. The Google Wave API allows developers to use and enhance Google Wave through two primary types of development:
Build robot extensions to automate common tasks or build gadget extensions to provide a new way for users to interact
Make your site more collaborative by dropping in a Wave
Google Wave is currently available in a developer preview as the APIs and product continue to evolve. Accounts on the developer sandbox will be given out to people intending to build with the Google Wave APIs prior to the public release.
A sense of confusion was created as to how to use it as soon as more and more users began to use the product. Google Wave has been called an "overhyped disappointment" with "dismal usability" that "humans may not be able to comprehend".
But even after all this, Google Wave still receives a fair share of positive press for its future capabilities and potential uses.
Ways to use Google Wave :-
Organizing Events - Keep a single copy of ideas, suggested itinerary, menu and RSVPs, rather than using many different tools. Use gadgets to add weather, maps and more to the event.
Group Projects – Collaboratively work in real time to draft content, discuss and solicit feedback all in one place rather than sending email attachments and creating multiple copies that get out of sync.
Photo Sharing – Drag and drop photos from your desktop into a wave. Share with others. Use the slideshow viewer. Everyone on the wave can add their photos, too. It is easy to make a group photo album in Google Wave.
Meeting Notes – Prepare a meeting agenda together, share the burden of taking notes and record decisions so you all leave on the same page. Team members can follow the minutes in real time, or review the history using Playback.
Brainstorming – Bring lots of people into a wave to brainstorm - live concurrent editing makes the quantity of ideas grow quickly! It is easy to add rich content like videos, images, URLs or even links to other waves. Discuss and then work together to distil down to the good ideas.
Interactive games – Add a gadget to a wave to play live interactive games with your friends (we're hooked on Sudoku!). See everyone's moves as they make them in a fast-paced game or take a break and come back later.
Google wave Extensions are mainly of 2 types:
A gadget is an application users can participate with, many of which are built on Google’s Open Social platform. A good comparison would be iGoogle gadgets or Face book applications.
Robots are automated participants within a wave. They can talk with users and interact with waves. They can provide information from outside sources (i.e. Twitter, stock quotes, etc.)
Solve challenging Sudoku puzzles together and see who is the best player!
Ready. Set. Talk! Ribbit brings telephone conference calls to Google Wave.
Enjoy a collaborative, real-time video chat experience. Share videos, play games, browse together and have fun with this playful gadget!
Co-create an itinerary: choose points of interest -- including Lonely Planet recommendations, organize, share, print, or export to My Maps!
The AccuWeather Wave Gadget is the perfect companion for trip planning. Select a location and date, and the gadget will return a forecast.
Collaborate on a map of place marks, paths, and shapes with other participants. Great for planning events and trips.
Gravity is a prototype developed by SAP Research in Brisbane, Australia and SAP NetWeaver Development. It provides real-time, cloud-based, collaborative business process modelling within Google Wave.

Imagine a world where everybody can share their knowledge not hindered by edit conflicts and software that is hard to understand; bringing Google Wave technology to Wikipedia.
Security for the communications is provided via Transport Layer Security authentication, and encrypted connections and waves/wavelets are identified uniquely by a service provider's domain name and ID strings. User-data is not federated, that is, not shared with other wave providers.

|good read , now as far as the product goes it looks like nothing but a jacked up messenger and another debacle from google who make the biggest [email protected] on the market today and it baffles me how many people use their stuff.|
|only thing is, google only gave out a limted amount of invites for google wave. Obviously is still being built, but google gave out invitations so people could preview it. Google is giving out no more invitations, the only way to get google wave now, is by buying an invite from someone who already has it because people also got upto 8 invites to give to people of their choice. Some sites, that were selling on invites to people, have said theres been a waiting list, going waaay into 2010.|
(by the way that information, is what was occuring a couple months ago. I dont know whats happening at this very moment. My mate who has google wave, has said to me, the amount of invites he can give out went up!....but like, google may be giving out more invites now, i'm not entirely sure)
