Staying on top of the (Google) Wave

Google Wave is an awesome tool, but right now I don’t have enough contacts on it to make checking it part of my daily routine. This causes me to miss the occasional activity of those friends who do use it, however rarely. Today I found an interesting wave which had been sleeping in there for the last five days, so I decided to look around and see if there are any notifiers available. The one I picked was Waver, which happens to be free, and works on both Mac and Windows.

Are you using Google Wave? What are your thoughts on it so far? Can you recommend any other desktop clients or notifiers for it?

  1. For me it is a solution for a problem that does not exist. It might only be useful in an office where people need to track different email threats but, managers will not like software that looks like a chat room or facebook.

    Management usually is made up of dull persons.

  2. There are plenty of uses for it outside an office environment – conversations with rich content and thread tracking are handy even in a small group. Wave is pretty damn fantastic, but until the usage picks up, it’s pretty damn useless. The longest wave I have so far mainly contains complaints about how few people actually use it 😛
