Google Wave???????

Google Wave, what is it?

I have recently received an invitation to use Google Wave, in which some "social networking experts" think it is going to be one of the BIG hits in the coming years!But as a tool, should Google Wave be categorized as:
*An instant messenger?
*A social networking site?
*An online document/project sharing platform?An improvement to Gtalk?Or
* just another communication tool?

Google's official words about Google Wave:

Google Wave is an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversationand a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.A wave is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.


Tested it lately. Seems like Google Wave can be used as:

1. A brainstorm tool in which many people speak at the same time for ideas.
2. A communication tool in which a project team with members in different and remote locations can discuss their project and work together.

Google Wave would be a great tool to support the "remote" office idea, after all, when it is used "correctly".

A press release gives you numerous benefits, including high powered links to your sites, possible media exposure and reaching new customers.

When writing your press release you must cater to two totally separate audiences. The first would be the media, if they smell a sales pitch they won’t even consider contacting you. The second is your customer, if there is nothing to interest them, they won’t pay any attention to you at all.

To write the best press release, study a few of the ones that are already out there. Always be sure to put a link to your website in every press release.
