join me on google wave

I'm starting to experiment with Google's in-preview Wave, an application that mixes the best of search, share, email, and chat--either backchanneled, private group discussions or public "waves." Google announced today that it's making even more invitations available, but I have a limited number to share with clients and friends of the blog. (Just email me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz, or find me on Google Wave at eloquentwoman[at]googlewave[dot]com.)

How to use this new tool's the question of the month, but here are some ideas I'm considering--all of them can make use of Google Wave's ability to share files, comments, links and more with public or private groups for collaborative purposes:

  • A discussion group on Scott Berkun's new book, Confessions of a Public Speaker;
  • A program committee to plan a conference;
  • An advisory group to counsel me on new ventures;
  • A judging panel to determine winners of a forthcoming contest;
  • A multilocation collaborative workgroup for a client needing consulting services;
  • A speaker coaching group.
Have you thought about how to use this new tool? Let me know if you want to join me in finding out more....and leave your reactions and thoughts in the comments.
