Google Wave Test

UPDATE:   I now have a “regular” Google wave account.   However, I can’t get any of the embedded waves to show up in a post.   Wavr plugin has gone through a few revisions and most of the wave plugins are designed for the sandbox accounts. So till I have time to goof with this some more and we have a better way to identify a wave ID, (That’s the big hangup on embed) I won’t have a wave for us to play with here at the lab.

Stay Tuned, I’ll let all you Lab Rats know when we have a wave to ride.


Original Post

If you have a google wave invite (account) and want to be added to this wave for testing leave a comment. I’ll add you to the Wave.

If you can’t see anything here you probably have to log into your wave account even if you are invited to the wave.   Remember Google Wave is very Beta at this point.

I’ll write a review about the plugin Wavr later.   There does appear to be a few bugs in it if you have tried it and not gotten it to work hang in there I’ll be doing a post on it shortly.

  1. Google has done a good job with the hype of google wave , I just hope it lives up to the hype. I haven’t received the big invite yet so I am on the outside looking in at this point. I have heard good and bad things about it. How are you finding it so far?

  2. Dan,

    I’m finding it extremely exciting and almost totally frustrating at this point. The potential for this platform is almost beyond imagination at this point.

    I don’t know if you remember when object oriented programming first started or not. But it was the same way then for anyone familiar with writing code to make the shift to object oriented programming. Now it is the standard.

    The frustration comes from the lack of clear precise documentation. Which seems to be the norm anymore. In a way I understand this with Wave, changes are happening so fast documentation is almost out of date before it is published.

    Today I decided to dig in and make this work at some level. I still don’t know if I have a Wave invite. I have a dev site and sandbox, but nothing that ties Google Wave to my regular Google Account. It even says to me “You aren’t a part of Wave” Yet I have a wave dev site and can create waves.

    I received no invites or even documentation links when I got the dev sandbox login and passwords. Pretty much a “There it is, its a sandbox, have fun” It hasn’t been fun.

    I’ll be writing more about Google Wave in the comings weeks and months. I can say this. Whatever the hype. It is understated. Learning how Google Wave works and getting in early will put anyone taking the time to do it WAY ahead of the curve when it comes to implementing Google Wave into their online presence and marketing.

  3. Cool idea, sign me up.

  4. Thanks for sharing your experience of google wave, I look forward to getting a chance to utilize it myself, I guess I will have to wait and be behind the eight ball when I do, but I am a fairly quick learner, well sometimes anyways 🙂
