While this subject can be very touchy for most people, my opinion is that there has to be a middle or common ground that we all can find. I do appreciate that youve added relevant and intelligent commentary here though. Thank you!

I would agree to the extent that it has made it easier for the stupid to be heard and for the ignorant to be misled.

Clearly Google Wave is not for everyone. Just for folks who are willing to learn a new and unique way of sharing every type of digital media in one online venue - IN REAL TIME. Sounds like the writer of this comment: "Wave is a waste of time" - Submitted by rstites950 on Thu, 2010-01-14 04:54 - would be satisfied with chalk and a green chalkboard. Fine, if that is all you need, turn off the computer, man - your carbon footprint is too big already!! There is NO other apparent online product besides Google Wave that I am aware of that offers such a range of collaborative abilities at any price, let alone for FREE.

I have little use for Wave right now. As others have commented, I already use other tools for these functions and training my friends and collaborators to use Wave would be too much work for too little return.

However, if they added a whiteboard where you could easily add graphics on the fly, along with layers that can be assigned for individual people involved in the online meeting, zoom in/out and pan around the board, then we would jump on it in a second!

And if Adobe added this feature and put in various options, such as importing a deck of cards and a shuffle function, it would be popular among gamers or bridge clubs where the members move to different cities/states/countries but still want to game together.

Your ideas for wave are pretty amazing and quite doable. There has to be a way you can package to thoughts to make them happen. If not perhaps you could use some assistance. While you have little use for wave right now I can defiantly see you finding a use for it in the future to develop the very ideas you spoke about. I also Read your profile: A very creative person who would like to find a job as game designer because there are so many games for the Mac and iPhone that, while very well made, aren't fun to play.  Unfortunately, while I can create games in real life that people enjoy playing for years, I have no programming skills, which means no game company will hire me. I would like to say this. Steve Jobs was no programmer but we are writing on a website devoted to a company he built around an idea. If your ideas are as good as you say they are. I think we should talk more.

And if so, chief2224 already points out, most enterprises will already have tools in place for colaboration, such as Outlook and the MS Office Suite including Office Communicator.

Your average Facebook user can already share comments, notes, and pictures. The only thing they're missing is filesharing and document colaboration. But I doubt your average Facebook user is going to need those tools.

Google Wave is certainly a work in progress, as spfjr points out, but I can definitely see the potential for a tool such as this one. The problem for early adopters, like some of the people here, is that there simply isn't critical mass around the tool usage. Sure, Google Wave could change how I connect with my family around the world. But a.) getting them all to use Google and b.) teaching them how to use Google Wave is a huge challenge. I think the most immediate application for Wave is as a collaboration tool for small companies to use within the enterprise, as well as with vendors, clients, etc. Most large enterprises already have tools to do some or most of what Wave does. But for smaller companies without such solutions, Wave could deliver significant value with little to no cost. Overall, I'm eager to see how Wave develops.

'Everyone in the same room'? Too funny - I'm in New Zealand, I have a sister in Ireland and a brother in HK, now should I pay around nzd$12,000 for flights to get us in the same room or should I use free Google Wave? hmmm let me think about that! Ohhh and of course I need to communicate with a client in Japanese although I don't speak a word of her language. Oh heck, now I need air fares as well as a translation service or perhaps I just need Google Wave, I wonder what that will cost me.
I'm male, blond and Irish so things have to be simple, Google Wave is exactly that and it didn't take 3 days to figure it out. Incidently here's a great Google Wave learning site http://waveconsultancyandtraining.com/ just about a one stop shop, except it's all free.

I think this article is nothing more than a ssales pitch. Goggle wave does nothing special. I used it for about three days and found that unless everybody was on it all the time it provided to real benifit. Besides, I do not need nor do I want to colaborate all of the time. On any team, people have responsibilities and skills that do not require constant updateing and monitoring. If a project is that critical, you will be better served putting everybody in the same room.

I had to create an account simply to reply to the sheer ignorance of rstites's comment.

First, you do your argument a great disservice by misspelling words that my 11-year-old brother could spell correctly. I pray that I never have a team leader who cannot spell "updating," let alone the product that are criticizing.

Second, this product is still in beta development. Of course, it's a sales pitch. The biggest problem I've seen with Wave, besides the lack of users, is the fact that I'm still figuring out what I can use it for. This article serves to inform readers of the different tools that are being developed for Wave, as well as the different ways in which people have found it to be useful. That being said, there are some uses on this list that I find better served with other tools (the task list, for example). But that doesn't negate the rest of the list, which I found to be rather informative.

Third, have you considered that perhaps other people have different needs than you? If you ran a business around the advent of email but found that it didn't serve your needs, does that necessarily mean that it is "a waste of time" for everyone else? You suggest "putting everybody in the same room" for critical projects. What an insightful idea! Why hadn't I thought of that? I work on such a community-source project, which has developers in England, South Africa, and various states in the US. This would've been the perfect solution to our location and time-zone problem.

tldr: Wave is still evolving, as are its uses. This list is a good summary of ways in which Wave might be useful to those who are open-minded and patient enough to give it a try.
