What is Google 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.
