Coming soon Google Wave ?

Well actually – Wave hello …. to Google Wave that is.

Mentioned during a meeting this morning on colloborative working and innovative ways of dealing with clients and colleagues…

So from Googles preview announcement site – with the note that this may be released later this year

Google Wave is a new model for communication and collaboration on the web, coming later this year.
Here’s a preview of just some of the aspects of this new tool.

What is a wave?

A wave is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.

A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.

Real time live collaboration

Concurrency control technology lets all people on a wave edit rich media at the same time

Natural Language Tools

Server-based models provide contextual suggestions and spelling correction
