What is Google Wave (2 minute video)

Google Wave has been the talk of the town over the past few days. Techies everywhere have been clamoring to the 100,000 invites which were sent out last week. It has been a trending topic on Twitter and the first reviews are coming in. As luck would have it, I`m not one of the fortunate 100,000 who received an invite, and can`t give my own opinion on it yet. But if you`re looking for a quick, simple explanation of how Wave may change the world as we know it, check out this video from EpipheoStudios.com.

And if you`re very patient, remember that there is still the original video: Google Wave Developer Preview at Google I/O 2009 which runs at just over 80 minutes.

Reviews of Google Wave to date have been mixed. Here are what some influential bloggers are saying:

It will be good for CMOs, but it won’t replace social media favorites among the masses. – Steve Rubel on Forbes.com

Google Wave crashes on beach of overhype – Robert Scoble on Scobleizer.com

…extremely stable and much faster than anticipated. For a “preview” release, Wave is very good, especially considering the complexity that is involved. – Louis Gray on louisgray.com
