I am fired up for Google Wave so when I read this article on PCWorld.com I was very excited to see that some companies are getting into the Wave closed Beta as early as this fall! When Google first showed their demostration of Wave this summer the company said customers might get invites to Beta by the end of September. I signed up in late July and I must admit that this month I will be anxiously checking my email looking for my invite, c'mon Google let me in!
PCWorld.com questions the relevance of Wave when they say, "We know that Google is excited about it, and developers seem enthusiastic. Now we just need to find out if real people understand it and want it." With the succes of other social media sites and the recognizability of Google I find it hard to believe that the general public is not going to jump all over Wave and fall in love with it. Of course the popularity of Wave will somewhat be determide by how well it runs at release but from what we have seen in the Wave demonstration it looks very user friendly and will be second nature for those who already use Google applications like Blogger and Gmail.
For now I am keeping my fingers crossed for my invite to the Wave Beta, If I get in I will have tons to talk about! Here is the demonstration in case you missed it.
