Waving at the Future

There was a big splash of news yesterday as Google demonstrated one of its new products from its laboratory.  They’re calling it Google Wave.

You can’t download and play around with it yet as an end user.  However, the potential if you are fond of using social media to make connections seems to be incredible.

As you can see, it’s making quite a bit of headlines right off the bat.  I’m reading the reports and am thinking of how many collaboration spaces and tools that I use regularly that might gel together in one spot should this work reliably as advertised.

I’m also liking the screen shots all done in Chrome.  With its clean design, there should be lots of horse power to drive this.  Where are the Macintosh and Linux versions?

It’s more than a notion.  Check out the video.

This could be big.  I can’t wait to get my hands on it.  At present, the best that can be done is sign up to be on the waiting list.
