Google Wave's First Birthday

Google Wave's First Birthday Opened for public no invites required for sign up image stopped google wave shuts down service standalone product
Google Wave has completed it's one year after the launch last year. In one year we have seen lots of improvements. Many new extensions have flooded the wave.
Last week Google opened Wave for public making lots of buzz in web, it requires no invitation to sign up now. People who hadn't seen it before or waiting for the invites suddenly jumped to it and started waving.

Google wave lets you collaborate people to communicate, meet up and arrive at consensus. Members of project can embed videos, notes, photos, leave comments at any line. Typing is live in Wave. If this is not enough then you have thousands of extensions out there, poll is the popular one. But this requires hi speed internet connection, what much of Indians don't have.

If anyone used it before, then you know scrolling is pain in Google Wave, it doesn't response in real time. I hope developers will fix it, while celebrating it's birthday ;)

Bloggers got the most benefits from wave, organizing contest and giving away invites (make 10 Google IDs then you have 90 invites to give away) :) Even people started selling it in forums.

I got my wave invite back in December last year just after getting Google Voice invite :B I kept my readers away from such contests which force them to comment on blogs who actually don't even like them.

We wanted to add a big "THANK YOU!" to all of the developers, students, teachers, journalists, screenwriters, video producers, analysts, entrepreneurs, robot builders, musicians, dentists, gamers, community organizers, veterinarians, hotel managers, engineers and everyone else who have been using Google Wave and sharing feedback and stories to help us continue building and improving the product, platform and protocol -- Wave Team

Friends there is a community out there who regularly use Google Wave.

Yeah, I am really a fan of Google Wave but now I do believe that Wave is not going to make a big magic or to replace the e-mail protocol. Surely, Wave is fantastic but average people are not likely to use Wave now.

About live blogging… its really interesting. As I am using blogger blog, to implying wave in blog the robot is more useful.
