    Congrats, Gina!! I’ve been enjoying all your Wave tips here, on Lifehacker, and on TWIG. This is going to be a huge help : ). Rock on!

    Your new book sounds fantastic. You are my heroine (he wrote carefully) – the best tech writer on the web.

    Hey Gina:
    Just wanted to say that I’m looking forward to using your guide as THE guide to Google Wave (I’ve been ‘nominated,’ just waiting for the actual invite [8^D heh)
    When I scanned through the first two chapters and discovered you (and/or your co-editors) are a fellow “Browncoat,” I KNEW we’d get along just fine 😉
    Last, but not least, you did a great job on the FOX gadgets & games segment I just watched where I learned why your name was so familiar…founder of LIFEHACKER!
    Much success to you in the future…geek on!

    Which Creative Commons license are you licensing it under? The website should probably have that in the footer (similar to Wikipedia).

    Congratulations on the book. I love the idea of a wiki style which will allow it to stay up to date.
    Would it be OK with you if I linked to the page from my blog? I would like to write a post encouraging people to read it. I’m sure it’s no problem, but I would like to be sure.

    Thank you. It should appear tomorrow morning at 8:00AM CST. Your site should get pinged with a trackback. I appreciate it, and the book is good. I have learned a lot from it. I have even worked up the courage to use Wave when getting things together for blog postings.
    Keep up the great work!

    I’ve been following you for awhile, both at Lifehacker and here at Smarterware. You’re an inspiration to anybody who passionately enjoys using software WELL! Congratulations on the book; what a help it will be!

    Wow. Just wow. I can’t even figure out how to invite people I know to wave with me or whatever.

    Sigh. You is smart.
