  1. Keith,
    Thanks for the article here. I just received my Wave invite this morning and, I have to admit, was a bit overwhelmed. I know these videos are out there somewhere, but thanks for pulling it all together and helping the Wave newbies.

  2. Hopefully I can get my web design customers to start using wave as it takes me months to get information which has to go through various parties before coming back to me. Looking forward to pushing this on.

  3. Extremely helpful links roundup! I’m writing a Google Wave review myself and it really helps to see how so many different people are using it. I’m lukewarm on it right now – it’s too complex for average users. But I hope it turns out to be a tool that collaborators just can’t live without.
