    Aww, that’s so cute. You are sooooooo nervous! Great job, on the speech, on the book, and on earning your new title, the ‘Herald of Google Wave’.

    It’s a great speech, congratulations.

    Recently I began reading your new book and I just loved it. It has helped me figure out what I could do with my google wave invite.

    As soon as some of my friends get their invites I’ll try to use it as a collaboration tool, like your video says, for homeworks and college stuff.

    Thanks for the guidance.

    Good job! I get so nervous in front of groups. Just keep thinking to talk slowly and breathe deeply (we in the south aren’t used to your accent. You tawlk kinda funny!). Every time I speak to people, which is rare, I keep thinking “Talk like Leo. Talk like Leo!”

    Also in this day and age, it is stronger to avoid using the word “amazing”. It’s a big fad now and it is becoming meaningless.

    Banning “amazing” is an excellent idea. I’m on board!

    I won’t argue with dropping overuse of “amazing” as a goal in formal writing/speaking/etc. (overusing any adjective is a no-no and kind of boring); I will argue until I’m dead with people complaining with how other people use words, à la http://www.banamazing.com/.

    We’re not slaves to words. Words mean whatever meaning people give to them, and that meaning comes through their use. It’s part of how some words’ meanings eventually become archaic, right?

    It’s one thing to get upset about people out-and-out incorrectly a word, particularly when it’s a misuse that’s not shared with any sort of critical mass of speakers, but when everyone’s using a word in a way that you feel dilutes the word’s meaning, deal with it. Maybe that word’s changing a little. For better or worse (better), language ain’t static.
