As Google Wave invites continue to spread like wildfire and more than just geeks are starting to explore Google Wave, I’ve seen an increase in the “what are your thoughts on Google Wave” questions. I’m humbled that individuals are interested in my thoughts about Google Wave, I’m also seeing a lot of consultants ask the same question, to see if I’m using Google Wave for any business/marketing use. Regardless, after spending a few days over the weekend to clean out my Google Wave inbox and do some research myself, I’m made a social bookmarking group of Google Wave resources. Also I recorded a video screen cast about how I’m using Google Wave now. Back to what are my thoughts on Google Wave and how I’m using it; here’s a list below.
- I think Google Wave will replace Gmail in the years to come
- I think Google Wave will be used by companies internally for communication and collaboration in the future
- I think Google Wave will be a part of Google’s social network that will include Google Reader
- I’m using Google Wave to collaborate on projects, where I upload files and brainstorm ideas in real-time with others
- I think Google Wave will become more popular to use for note taking at conferences
