I watched the google wave video again tonight for the second time. Wow I love this product, platform and protocol!
Since the YouTube video won’t allow annotations, I wanted to pick out the best bits so I could easily find them again, so I decided to create my own contents with time markers… so here is the contents and the approximate time markers, and some of my thoughts… I will do another blog post or two about things I love about Wave soon.
Wave video contents:
08:00 basic wave editing with spellchecker and offline message delivery
09:38 inline reply
10:34 synchronous real time communication
11:50 private messages and adding people
13:20 playback the wave
14:46 private reply restrict access to a subset of the wave
15:22 adding photos to the wave and instant viewing of thumnails – never again issues with uploading photos (requires google gears)
18:36 start of api’s
19:05 bloggy bot adding wave content to the blog
20:45 blog comments
23:17 orkut integration so what? replace orkut with facebook then it’s cool
23:26 wave on mobile devices
26:48 editing a wave including editing other peoples waves “discussion and content creation in one tool” including markup of edits “we never said lets start a document”
31:40 a document view and playback include versioning and submit to the server and merge changes and source control integation – full document production – look out SharePoint!
35:33 synchronous editing with labels to see who is typing where – COOL!
37:20 right to left editing in the same wave as left to right editing and international text
40:19 organising waves – folders and saved searches and tags shared by all participants in the wave
40:55 Wiki Waves – COOL! – watch out confluence (although it will be a while before it matches confluence enterprise features)
41:49 Search – cool! – “the wave dance”
43:21 start of extensions
43:58 spelling – spelly – COOL! natural language recognition of words, automatic correction “icland is an icland”
43:39 Links – linky
47:08 Searchy google search inside wave – bye bye evernote!
48:00 You Tube – demo failed
48:50 open social apps inside wave
49:25 movie times

51:35 sudoku and chess including playback of gadgets – quite cool
52:40 google maps integration – real time zooming of google maps in both waves – COOL
52:29 real time markup of google maps – imagine the possibilities for real time markup of pdf documents or video or pictures
54:04 the YouTube example working
55:02 start of server side robots
55:19 new poll – Polly the Polster – forms inside a wave – fill them out collaboratively – options for answers, synchronous updates of graphs
57:25 installing a wave
58:05 Twitter – a Twave! including Stephanie showing her twitter password! (tab between fields not implemented yet). Proxy contacts on a different system. Includes twitter search – they were real time searching on google wave during the presentation. Use twitter searches like twitter alerts (probably similar to google alerts)
1:01:40 Buggy – real time integration between wave and the code.google.com issue tracker – COOL – Imagine real time integration with Jira or TFS
1:05:20 start of protocols

1:08:13 Initech’s wave server – command line based – cool!
1:09:20 private replies across servers. Copies of the wave on both Initech’s and Google’s servers. Replies within the same server never leaves that server.
