    I’m so jealous… I can’t wait to try it myself!!! I hope google hurries up and launches it soon.

    Brilliant. Thanks for putting all of this together for the masses. I can see this not so much replacing email, but that email will migrate towards this format and it WILL BE email!

    Thanks for the sneak peek. Now to convince you to let us play in the sandbox 🙂

    I second Troy 😉

    I am really looking forward to seeing this live.

    One of the biggest technical challenges I foresee is the potential latency issues for poor connections. How do you handle that? Since there is the central Single Source of Truth, you wouldn’t want the source to miss your input if you have some packet loss or high latency.

    And can I queue input if I’m offline – yes, I know it’s a website, but at least I can write e-mail when I’m offline…

    Still, I’m a major proponent.

    How do you think this will work with a lot of users? Is it possible to be used in huge debates/discussions, say instead of big internet forums?

    I’m thinking a lot of users and *big* waves

    Do you know if the development community will have access to Wave before the public community does? Since the code base is “open” I would imagine that Google would want the software integrations to be rock solid before they go live with this product.

    Thanks for the analysis Gina!

    Are the Waves indexed by Google?
    In other words, if you build a website entirely with Waves (like a Blog with its comments), can pages and comments be found with the Google search?

    I’m really looking forward to checking out Google Wave for writing collaboration… I’ve been using Etherpad for a while, and it’s great (and lives behind the firewall) but it doesn’t necessarily work well for richly formatted documents.

    If you’re looking for a quick tool for collaborative, real-time-update writing that’s available now, though, I would take a look at Etherpad ASAP.
