Session Title

Google Wave: Ripple or Tsunami?

Description

Google hopes that Wave will replace traditional email and IM as the new way to communicate and collaborate online. Google used as a verb is now common parlance and increasingly more people are using Google Gmail. Is Google Wave a paradigm shift or just another web 2.0 tool? During this presentation, we’ll demonstrate Google Wave; explain what it does (and talk about what it’s supposed to do); show examples of how Google Wave is being used; and discuss possible uses of Google Wave.
