What is Google Wave? by epipheo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDu2A3WzQpo
     Google Wave vs. Email
•   Real-time
•   Extensibility
•   Hosted
•   Playback
•   Easier File Sharing
                       Gadgets
• A gadget is an application that users can add to a
  wave to add functionality that Google Wave does
  not provide.
• Some examples of gadgets are
   o   Trippy
   o   Map Gadget
   o   Yes/No/Maybe Gadget
   o   Wave Sudoku

• Find Gadgets under the Extensions link in the
  Navigation menu.
                          Robots
• Robots are automated participants in a wave.
• They can do anything a user can do.
• Most often used to respond to user input and either
  alter input or access information from outside
  sources based on input.
• Some examples of Robots are
   o   BitlyBot
   o   Cartoony
   o   Polly
   o   ZorkBot

        What’s it Good For?
•   Group to-do list or work log
•   Event Planner
•   Meeting Notes
•   Project Management
              Enhancements
•   Access Permissions
•   Extensions Menu
•   Email Notifications
•   Wave is still in Preview so things are changing all the
    time!
                     Issues
•   Low adoption due to Wave being invite only.
•   Wave can be slow at times.
•   Not easy to export or print waves.
•   Unable to remove participants from waves.
