Catch the Wave – A Week of Giveaways

Well, by now you’ve probably all heard that our information overlords over at Google have started to unlock the gates on their modern day answer to an age old problem — communication. So Google Wave is starting to show up in the wild and everyone wants a glimpse.

And we do too. So, welcome to Google Wave Week at Web.AppStorm

Part of the issue with Google Wave is that it’s a little hard to figure out at first. What is it? How does it work? Who can it benefit?

Well, during the course of the week, we’re going to do our best to answer those questions. When Google first introduced Wave earlier this year, it was demoed in a very long video. I know a lot folks didn’t see the need to sit through the demo and so there are still a lot of people a little uncertain of what all the fuss is about.

Luckily, some folks have set their minds on explaining to real people just how Google Wave has the potential to change the way we use our computers to communicate. The video here does a great job of describing the underlying concepts behind Wave and the problems it was intended to solve.

Hopefully that helps you understand the cause of all the commotion.

Wave Giveaways

Well, last week I had the good fortune of obtaining two — yes, that’s right, two — Google Wave invites. And since I can already sense your inevitable envy and anger at the injustice of this, not to worry … I’m in a sharing mood. One of the invites I received came from a Web.AppStorm reader, so it’s only fair that the invites go back to you all.

So everyday this week we’re going to give away one Google Wave invite. Starting right now. Post a comment and mention how you think Wave may change the way we communicate in the next year.

And then check in again tomorrow for another chance.
