I know that I am personally still kind of exploring it. Maybe we could
do something on it in a couple months? It doesn't seem like there's
much to talk about quite yet beyond functionality demos, but that's not
as interesting to me as possible uses when it's actually launched. (As
we know, it's invite-only at this point). I don't know how Dave and
Tony feel, but that's my personal take on it.

I thought Wave looked pretty overwhelming when I saw a demo a
while back, so I haven't set aside any time to try it. But clearly, it
must be useful and I just need to understand it better. Or, if it's
not terribly useful, I also should understand that better too, beyond
just one demo…
Looking forward to hear how the Wave users incorporate this into
our web continuing ed process. My main question is, do we want to
project this on the second screen in 101 Walter during the meeting or
is this more "off line" or post-meeting?
(and if we do project, would that be distracting?)

I'm not sure how many of us at the U have preview access to
Google Wave yet, but it might be interesting to try to set up a Wave
for the Web Dev meetings as a way to discuss the meeting topics and
follow up with resources, links & etc. from the presenters. There
may not be time to get it going today, but perhaps at a future meeting.
I've had the opportunity to use Wave for real-time collaboration
recently. It's handy, even if still a little buggy.
My thought was one Wave per meeting. The Twin Cities Wave has been fun,
but has grown into monster. There's something to be said for limiting
the subject matter IMO.
