Google Wave gets rolling with 100,000 new users

google-wave-logoIn Videos: So, Google Wave is finally out and is making big news. If you are on Twitter, you must have been flooded with tweets about the ‘Wave’, so you know what I’m talking about. For those, who don’t, Google Wave (as defined by Google) is ,”an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more”. As of now, it’s not a public launch, but only a testing phase with Google sending out invites to those who expressed interest in Wave in the past months. 100,000 invites have been rolled out and have been divided in three categories. The first two being ‘Google Apps users’ and ‘developers’ and the third category being restricted to schools in Sydney to test how students and faculty will use this product.  The key is that every user who gets an invite today also gets to invite 8 other people, thus expanding the test.

I have not received an invite, but here’s what you can read for a review: Google Wave Starts Rolling, Picks Up Over 100,000 New Riders
