and you're sittin' on top of the world. I just received an invite to the new Google Wave. It looks promising as a means for mashing several popular communication media together. I'd like to test drive it with my Multimedia class but somehow I doubt they really want to talk to me outside of school.
As with any new social media, building your contact base takes time. Even more so when it's by invite only. I can easily see business applications but it's the entertainment and social networking that will ultimately drive our "need" for it.
I'll try to find one of my smaller classes with tech savvy students that would be willing to test drive the new Wave and report back in a couple of weeks.
