Update: I got my invite and am going to be riding the wave real soon!
Update on top of an update: Someone has put a bid on a Google Wave invite on Ebay.
Do you have an opinion on that?
Update: Today is the big day; Google Wave is having the preview of the product by 100,000 people.
But if you didn’t get an invite don’t feel bad there is still a chance you can check it out before next year.
I went to Google Wave Preview and signed up to get an invite, hopefully I can get a chance to check it out. Another way to get into the preview circle and ride the Wave is if a friend, who did receive an invite, invites you.
According to an article I read on, The Register, there are some issues that need to be addressed before the release to the general public. That is why this is a beta product and Google needs the public’s help.
Well, Google really doesn’t like the testing period to be called beta they want it to be called a preview. I don’t know why; maybe they want the public to think that the Wave is almost complete and that there is not that much more needed to be done to make it complete, but according to the article above there could be some melt downs and tweaks needed here or there to complete the product.
I’m sure I will have some updates over the next couple of days about what is going on with the Wave.
If you have been splashing around in the Wave itself, let me know how it is. And if you have been wading around the outside, on the coattails of a friend, let me know how that is going too.
