There are so many articles already written about Google Wave, the web-based service, computing platform, and communications protocol designed to merge e-mail, instant messaging, wikis, and social networking It has a strong collaborative and real-time focus supported by extensions that can provide, for example, spelling/grammar checking, automated translation among 40 languages and numerous other extension initially released only to developers, a “preview release” of Google Wave was extended to nearly 1 million users beginning September 30, 2009, with the initial 100,000 users each allowed to invite up to twenty additional users.
But since there are so many written about it, the problem is that it is scattered around the web. Found a manual that you can use to guide you step by step and also give you the run down of what cool things you can do and can’t do on the wave.
The Complete Guide to Google Wave is a collaborative user manual for Google Wave written and edited by Gina Trapani with Adam Pash. Launched one month after the Google Wave preview release, this guide is the most current, comprehensive, independent user resource for the most ambitious (and confusing) web application ever created.
In the spirit of Google Wave, this guide is a bold experiment in collaboration and public iteration, as well as independent book publishing. READ THROUGH IT HERE.
