Is Google Wave going to be part of Google Apps?

I was going through the Google Apps pages and noticed that a NEW feature has been added. That is Google Wave. I don’t know when they added it exactly, but it seems funny to have it listed as a new feature to Google Apps when they have said that they are going to close it down. Are they going to close it down for the google account users then? Will it still be available to the Google Apps users as an intranet? Or have they just forgotten to mention to new possible Google App buyers that this feature will not be there after they BUY it?

Wave Goodbye To Google Wave… @Google are you CRAZY?! I mean seriously!!!

Media_httptctechcrunc_enwlp

This announcement hit my like a BOMB! We have spent 1 year using this fantastic platform internally and it has practically SAVED us many, many times from making a mess of things. This announcement by GOOGLE is very, very bad!

One year of collaborative data, an extensive Methodology and many, many other things we have done and learned while “Waving” are going to be taken away from us just like that?!?!

Is Google snooping around my stuff?

This is my story about how Google Buzz posted something on my wall that was aggregated from an old YouTube post of mine, without letting me know before. I will present the facts and keep it as short as possible.

YouTube video on January 31, 2010, 06:22 AM

I added a video to my YouTube channel called “spyridonas live at 06:17am PST on 01/31/2010“. This is just a simple video of me driving in Rethymno, it is nothing special.

Joined Google Buzz on February 10, 2010

I joined Google Buzz like most of my friends did, mostly out of curiosity. Here is my 1st post (http://www.google.com/buzz/Sp.Papaspyropoulos/bjehvZEq4ez/I-am-not-impressed-Why-do-we-need-another-Social). I played around with it for a couple of days, I added my YouTube channel to the list of connected sites and that was that.

Google Buzz posts my January video on my Buzz time line on February 12, 2010

Without asking me, Google Buzz, picked my last YouTube video, the one I mentioned before, the video that was posted on YouTube on the 31/01/2010 and posted it on my Buzz time line!!!
You can see the conversation about this Buzz here http://www.google.com/buzz/Sp.Papaspyropoulos/Gi3HbcTHDEk/spyridonas-live-at-06-17am-PST-on-01-31-2010.

So, my questions to Google are:

  1. Why did you do this without asking? 
  2. Why did you post a video on my Buzz time line that was there 2 weeks before Buzz had even started working?
  3. Are you going to dig up older posts of mine from my connected sites and start posting them to my Buzz time line in the future?
  4. Shall I disconnect all my sites, in case you start posting things without my approval? 

My Waves are back!

My Google Waves are back! Wow, that felt sooo weird, not being in touch with my notes and files. I wonder if something is updated or added. Anyway, everything is back to normal now, so I can continue Waving to my x2interactive colleagues.

Cheers!

Where did my Waves go?!?!

Google Wave just vanished! Ok, I know Google has warned us that it is still unstable but where are all my Waves??!?! I have used it for complex project management and I need it to read some notes, but this is not possible at the moment! Is this happening to you too?

I suddenly feel very dependant on Google and the Wave… I wonder how good this is for me and all Googlers in general?
Anyway, let’s hope this is resolved soon!

I am on the Wave (Google)

I got my Google Wave invitation and I am thrilled! Unfortunately I do not have any invitation rights, so I can’t invite anybody yet! Since Google Wave is mainly a collaboration tool, I think that it would be good if I got some invitation rights in the future, because I would like to test it as a Project Management tool. Anyway, if something new occurs and I suddenly get that magic Google Wave with the invites, I will post it on here and will give away as many as possible. If there are any of us left of the Wave by then that is :)

Cheers!
