I watched this shorter, but a bit techie, Live Collaborative editing video first. Here's my quick take (though I've only had a sniff of Wave, not even yet a taste):
- Transformative, real-time collaboration. That's what Google is teaching the computers to do (note to my educamatorpologist pals: if Google is banking on and teaching "transformative" "collaboration" with it's valuable assets, shouldn't we do likewise?
- Channels for the noise. So many channels of communication. We need a Tivo-type social media channel guide to surf with. Could it be the Wave?
- Power in Collective Smarts: Google Wave provides a framework for collaboration, and the collective and collaborative genius called the community (that's us) can build and improve upon that.
I'm looking forward to more.
