has anyone else seen this? google is reinventing the internet.

I'll see if there's a video of highlights or something. 1 hr 20 mins is a bit much to sit through, and a lot of it is the general ass kissing and self praise that always goes on at conferences.

alright no condensed video. suck.

but it looks awesome. conversations will exist indpendent of any particular platform. you can reply to a part of a conversation instead of just replying to the entire thing. live updates as other people edit things. the message board will never be the same.

it makes everything so much more easily stored, shared, edited. in a conversation you can reply to the part of the message you are commenting on instead of just replying to the entire thing. you can play back a history of who said what when. if it's a document that can be edited by multiple people you can see who is editing as they edit it. if someone is writing a reply you see the reply as they type it. if you choose to share it elsewhere (e.g. a blog) people on the blog will see comments made in google wave and vice-versa, in real time. so a conversation could have people contributing from google wave, facebook, and some blog all at once. you can get live updates of it all without refreshing. (minus a few instances they haven't gotten working yet).

It's also a real long freaking video to watch if it's something that isn't going to be all that cool for the average user. I don't have a problem with reading something that's a long description, I don't mind looking at pictures but I also don't work an office job because I don't want to go to most conferences. I just didn't want to sit and watch an hour of video hoping for something cool. I watched Waterworld.

Thank you Kingsblend. After reading that I should have just watched the movie. You were right supre.

I think it's way over hyped. Current apps work just fine the way they are for email/web/IM and no one has had any desire to replace them. That sentiment seems to be shared by a lot of folks. I for one won't use it, that's for sure. I don't use gmail, gtalk or Chrome. I may use Chrome when they have it for linux (which was promised within 6 months of the initial Chrome release but still hasn't happened yet!), but google doesn't need to record all my IM conversations and have access to all my email. They have enough information about me as it is, just from logging all my search results.

lots of people have desires to replace them with something better. it's such a fucking pain to manage email threads at the moment. especially once you get split threads. their new method is a much more sensible way of organizing conversations and preventing multiple people responding simultaneously. and sharing information between apps is a real fucking pain. when I upload my photos to flickr I would like my facebook friends to be able to comment on them. right now it requires me to either upload the photos to two places, or have people sign up for accounts at both places, both of which are a pain.

also, this is a technology not a service. the word is that google won't be hosting all of the wave servers. and they can't stop other people hosting wave servers because it's open source. a company could have their own private wave server for corporate use. the wave servers on the internet could be hosted by google or anybody else.

there is some validity to the concern about them having access to all that information. but ultimately hosted conversations are much more powerful and flexible.

You are so incredibly wrong.

Out of these people, every single one has expressed excitement at the implementation that google has proposed.

Indeed. As it's been pointed out on numerous blogs, when typing an IM, a lot of times I will erase what I've typed or rethink it and rewrite it a different way. I do not want someone to see what I've typed until I've had a moment to complete a coherent thought. It's like blurting out the first thing on your mind without thinking about it at all.

Because as several cuddly internet companies have proven in China, they're not as hesitant as I'd like them to be when it comes to handing over our information.

I prize my online anonymity because I frequently like talking about shit that is a) illegal and b) taboo out in the real world. More than that, I'm looking at a career in tech related fields, with companies who love a'googling and a'facebooking their employees as it is. I don't want my employers and prospective employers browsing my dubious internet history. So yes. I'll be watching this and future developments in this mould with interest.

Privacy isn't just for criminals. But according to coldstart, he or she shouldn't have a cellphone "because they know where you are" or have any utility bills because "they have your address" or talk on the phone "because they can hear you" or have a bank account, etc.

I have privacy concerns too. But there isn't anything new on wave that isnt already on facebook, twitter, flikr, hotmail, whatever.

And if one is going to worry about privacy over the internet, Google shouldn't get hardly the attention that the likes of AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, et al. should be getting. They are the real gatekeepers.

I've was a beta tester for gmail, I've seen it. :P But I host my own email server and have for many years before gmail ever existed in the minds of the google engineers. And that's the way I intend to keep it.

Privacy isn't about whether you have "important" information or not. Everyone has a right to privacy. But, my concerns are more business based. I transmit sensitive information via IM all the time with clients and folks I am working with. That's also why I host my own XMPP (aka Jabber) IM server, which has end-to-end encryption built right in (and, GTalk is just the XMPP protocol, so I can still talk to people using that just fine). In these cases where business is involved, if I get compromised or information about my clients gets compromised, I not only get a bad reputation, but I can get sued off the face of the planet.

You don't seem to recognize the vast amount of data mining that's going on right now. It's fairly trivial for someone to know pretty much where you are, what you are doing, etc. at any given time or what sites you are visiting, what's going on in your life, all about your family members, etc. This is scary as more and more things go "online" since, if I know everything about you, I can, for instance, go to your online banking site, use the "Forgot my password" option, enter your pet's name (since I know that from you twittering or IMing about it) and then, boom, I have access to your money. That's just one of many examples.

Specific to the Google problem, they use any information that they glean from your search habits, purchasing habits, sites you visit, keywords in your email, etc. to better place relevant advertising in your face. At least, that's what they do at the moment. They are capable of much more evil but thankfully, up to this point, they have seemingly held true to their "do no evil" motto. But why should I trust a giant money-grubbing corporation?

By staying focused on cloud development they're going to end up owning the part of computing that's really gonna matter more than software, hardware, and everything else combined, especially ten years from now--internet communication. Operating systems will become something you install once and barely ever touch again.

To wit, I suppose maybe Google's doing the right thing if they're developing an OS specifically for that purpose.

I am an idiot when it comes to computers. I have read basically what this does... but I still don't get it. Something like I can upload my pictures to facebook and they are also uploaded to my photobucket? I can get peoples twitter through facebook... stuff like that. Am I on the right track or did I completely misread everything. If someone could dumb it down to lowest possible level, I would appreciate it.

I think the chrome OS is designed to be a dedicated internet browser, with the intention to use it for web applications, nothing more.

Am I on the right track or did I completely misread everything. If someone could dumb it down to lowest possible level, I would appreciate it.

part of it is that a picture/video/whatever can be shared in any app -- so when I upload a pic I could publish it on facebook for people there to see and comment on, and here for people on the board to comment on, and it would be a single copy with a single set of comments. and other people can include it in their photo album without having to duplicate the photo.

it also changes the way you hold conversations. in a thread here we always post to the end. if you're posting in response to one particular comment you can insert your comment as a response to that part of the post. if you want to reply to a comment that was made way at the beginning you can do that at the beginning where it was relevant. etc. people can see you typing live, if you want them to. so no more split email threads or replies to posts without seeing the latest information.

I'm sure there's more I am forgetting.

Potentially. But they are opening themselves up to some nightmare anti-trust issues in the short term.

It's an interesting question. Although in theory if they didn't bundle chrome with the OS then I guess they could get away with it. That Microsoft anti-trust suit was such stupid bullshit. For all the hundreds of ways MS really DID try to hinder competition, that was a really pathetic grounds on which to file an anti-trust suit. And nothing fucking changed.

Really what they'd be doing is just putting out an OS that's ideal for running strictly cloud-based systems, an arena that it seems pretty clear they're going to dominate. As long as they avoid doing shit that would be perceived as inhibiting the ability of others to compete with their cloud apps on their OS and vice versa, they ought to weasel out of it. Although they did a pretty shitty job with their last anti-trust suit. That shit was hilarious. "Please explain to me how you are not going to be a monopoly if we let this deal go through, and don't tell us it's because you're not evil, thanks."


I think the chrome OS is designed to be a dedicated internet browser, with the intention to use it for web applications, nothing more.

What Google has been building up to over the past several years though is trying precisely to wrench control of Microsoft's dominance in the software and OS field by shifting the fight to a completely new venue--entirely web-based computing. They might be absolutely onto something. It doesn't seem unfathomable that within 5 or 10 years free wireless internet might exist pretty much everywhere and no one will really need locally stored data or locally run applications at all. Google's trying to kill Microsoft by making everything just go through the internet, which might very well resolve a fuckload of drawbacks to the current computing model.

How awesome would it be to never have to update any of the applications you use or worry about bizarre errors because the application is perfectly configured on a web server somewhere for you to use as simply as this message board?

Google Wave is more fun when you have others to wave with, so please nominate people you would like to add. Keep in mind that this is a preview so it could be a bit rocky at times.


Invitations will not be sent immediately. We have a lot of stamps to lick.

Google Wave Invites for Sale on eBay

By Marisa Taylor

With Google releasing 100,000 invites to test the beta version of the much-hyped Wave, one enterprising blogger decided to capitalize on all the buzz surrounding the new messaging and collaboration tool by selling his invite on eBay.

Hagan Blount, a 30-year-old food blogger based in Baltimore, had been listening to the chatter about Wave and hatched the idea to auction his invite on eBay. “I figured there’s a whole lot of buzz. I wonder how many hits this would get?” he said.

Of course, Mr. Blount hadn’t yet received his invite, but he said that a software developer friend of his who did not wish to be identified had promised to procure one for him. Mr. Blount commenced the auction on Tuesday night, and by the time he had woken up at 6 a.m. Wednesday, the day that Google would be releasing Wave invites, his auction had already received 12,000 hits.

As the day wore on, he received about 33 bids for the Google Wave invite, with the winning bid reaching $157. One eBay user tried to set up two accounts and entered a bid for $5,000, which Mr. Blount quickly deleted. Dozens of questions piled up in his eBay account inbox, asking him if the Wave invite was real, and if so, whether it could be purchased on the spot. One man from Sweden offered $700 to buy it outright, and another who identified himself as “a businessman” said he would pony up $27,000 if the invite was authentic.

However, Mr. Blount said he received an automated message from eBay, saying that he was violating the site’s terms of service by trying to sell an item without owning the copyright. “I’m sure somebody flagged it for a terms-of-use violation because they didn’t think of the idea,” he said. “This was more of an experiment, to see what it was going to become, rather than trying to sell the thing.”

Mr. Blount removed his auction from eBay, but since then, a few more invites from other users have popped up.

Google declined to comment. EBay did not immediately responded for requests for comment.

Mr. Blount isn’t the first to take advantage of the public’s affinity for new Google services–tech enthusiasts turned to eBay in order to buy and sell invites to Gmail when it was first introduced, and they did the same for Google Voice. This time around, Google Wave was trending as a topic on Twitter and was filled with tweets in which users asked their friends whether anyone had an extra invite.

Hello!

I am an active member of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Message Board! We have been talking about using Google Wave as a great tool to supplement, and or possibly replace the tools we have been using to stay in touch regarding the annual festival! We use the forum to coordinate shows that we are going to, meetups, talk about past Coachella's, waste our time talking about Rumors, and many other amazing topics! We are in a great position to be able to not only test Google Wave, but to be able to provide useful feedback in a timely manner!

Thanks for your consideration!!

The coolest thing I've seen with it was yesterday when I was reading a blog post. They added a wave to the comments section of the blog, so the whole comment discussion was taking place in a wave. It worked really well until the post got popular and it was a wave with >400 users.

The more I play with it and add gadgets, the more I understand what it's meant for (and how to use it effectively). This thing is really cool. They really need to release a settings option though, and allow live typing to be turned off. It's cool setting up games of chess, sudoku, and connect 4 between other users.

Online chess isn't really cutting edge technology.

My Google Wave - which I don't know what to do with - says I have 20 invites. PM me if you want an invite - let me know the email addy that you want the invite sent to.

5 down, 15 to go.

Yes I realize that...but in the context of playing it in a "wave" with several other contacts, where you can plan moves etc...it's pretty cool.

I was looking around at this yesterday and came the conclusion that most anything you do here, you can do elsewhere. I just watched one of the YouTubes they made to explain it and that's really what they're getting at too.

That, you know, you can go to Google Maps, and Google Documents and various email and chatting clients and YouTube and Babelfish and, well, a lot of other places. But, ya see, that's exactly the point. I don't know that Wave is, so much, doing anything new but it's doing everything in one place. With traceable collaboration and clarifying unity. Plus, apparently, you can do everything here and have it propagate out to everything else as desired.

4 of the 5 requests have already been processed. The only one that hasn't gave me a yahoo.com address rather than a gmail.com address. I guess you need a gmail.com address.

My invite was sent to my yahoo.com email address. It worked fine. Took 2 days to get the signup link after the invite was sent.

9 invites left - come & get them - oh, I'll be at NASCAR in Phoenix, baby, so you'll have to wait for a response later tonight.

BTW, this is a NASCAR baby...

I made a public Coachella Wave.

in the wave searchbox, look for "with:public coachella message board" but don't type the quotes.

go here:
in the wave searchbox, enter "with: public coachella message board"...minus the quotes, of course. there are a few of us there. not sure about this thing yet, though. seems like ti could become one giant clusterfuck.

Hi Chris. I keep trying to add you to a wave but it keeps glitching on me so maybe Brad or John could add you.
