Google Wave GuideSo like the few tens of thousand people who have tried Google Wave, I am struggling to see what benefit it will have for me in the immediate future?

I am keen to give it a try out and to find out more about it, so I did a few searches online and stumbledupon this guide called “The complete guide to Google Wave” <how original?> by Gina Trapani & Adam Pash. The application isn’t even available to the masses yet and someone has gone and written a guide book on it and a PDF which is selling for $6’s. <nice & good luck to them>

Google Wave is a new web-based collaboration tool that’s notoriously difficult to understand. This guide will help. Here you’ll learn how to use Google Wave to get things done with your group. Because Wave is such a new product that’s evolving quickly, this guidebook is a work in progress that will update in concert with Wave as it grows and changes.

Those words coming from the two editors of the website. If it’s so bloody difficult to understand why do they think people are going to want to use it, let alone part with 6 bucks to learn something that is difficult [superemotions file=”icon_question.gif” title=”Question Mark”] (perhaps the very reason why I want to learn about it because it’s difficult and querky).

Anyway, it’s a very good read if you are struggling to see what Google Wave can do, and it has certainly helped me better understand it. Whether I will use it like it’s intended purpose, only time will tell.

Then I discovered that Gina Trapani is the editor of one of my all time favorite websites called Lifehackers.com. So, not some fly by the night author. Gina certainly knows what she is talking about!

So come on friends and family, let me know if you want an invitation. I have 10 invites left (9 if Jeff sends me his email address). As mentioned in the previous post, family and friends first and if there are no takers, then I will offer them to the world.
