Google Wave Online Book

image Google recently released Google Wave. It’s at a preview stage. It’s also invitation only. Being excluded during my school years, even by the “out crowd”, I wanted in! One of my former students, HotDogWater, mercifully sent me an invitation. So now I’m in! But in what?

Per Google, “Google Wave is an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration.” Uh, OK.

Fortunately (for me), The Complete Guide to Google Wave is a free online book. Its website states: “Google Wave is a new web-based collaboration tool that’s notoriously difficult to understand.” I’ll drink to that.

I haven’t had a chance yet to delve into this online book. But perusing its table of contents, looks like there’s a lot of good information there.

The book will be kept up to date. The book’s website states: “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.”

The book also will be available as a PDF: “The preview edition of The Complete Guide to Google Wave will be available for purchase as a DRM-free PDF in November of 2009. The first edition will debut in January as both a PDF and a softcover print book, with new editions to follow throughout 2010.”

Now to figure out which device to use as an eReader.

  • Hah, nice… I will definitely check the book out! 🙂

  • I bought this device because I read a lot of books. I don’t read any of the best sellers, I read mostly the paranormal romance books and Sci Fi. The reason I bought this device instead of the Sony electronic reader is that the books are downloaded directly to the device. You don’t need to be at your computer. So , if you are on the road, you can download a book without a computer.
    Another reason I bought the Kindle is that I have a iMac. The Sony reader needs a PC. The only thing I found is a drawback of the Kindle is that some of the books I would like to have downloaded are not offered in Kindle format yet. I have to click on the ‘request to publisher’ and hope that it will be made available in a reasonable amount of time before I resort to buying the book at a store.
