SO, this is my first actual blog post in over 2 months, and I just wanted to say that I have missed this good addiction. Glad to be back though, and thanks to everyone for all the love and support I had within the last 2 months 🙂
3 Years ago I predicted that Google will create a Google OS (Android is out for mobile devices and netbooks, Google Chrome OS is coming in late 2010).
2 Years ago, I predicted that Facebook will be huge.
A year and a half ago, I predicted that Twitter will be huge.
A year ago I predicted that FriendFeed will be very big! (Facebook bought it recently for a large 7 figure number).
2 Months ago I was thrilled to hear about (and get a developer account to review it) Google Wave.
Today I heard that Google is opening wave to non-developers users (power users that is) to give it a play ground review.
Today, I also predict that Google Wave will be the new big thing for the next 2 years at least.
Today, I had many friends asking me for a Google Wave invites, to them, I say: Sorry guys, I have zero invites to give, but just wait a week or 2 and you will get your own. Just make sure you have a Google account (and who doesn’t nowadays?!)
What is Google Wave?
In short: Google Wave is an open source server-side software platform for real-time collaboration and communication between any number of individuals. Utilizing the latest HTML 5 standard, Wave runs in any current compliant browser. (Watch the very long video above) (or watch the very short video preview below).
Many of you asked what happened to the Twitter addict I once was. The answer is: Wave, new Wahol, and project ‘W’ took all my time for the last 2 months!
Once you have Wave, send me a “wave” 🙂 you know my name! Hint: Same as my Twitter name: @GuruOfSales
P.S.: Reason I had Wave as a developer, is that it’s open source, and I am working with a team on an eBay/Paypal app to be used in Wave 😉
While I (GuruOfSales The Blog) was gone, I was not just sleeping all the time!
As I promised in an earlier post, I will start posting a series of 20 or so articles that I have written within the last 3 months.
All the articles are related to events on the web and announcements within my projects.
I will include a note in the beginning of each article to point out that this is just a catch up series for those of you that did not catch the events as it happened, I will also include in each title a #hashtag (à la Twitter) with a number at the end to indicate which article of the series it is. The #hashtag will be #WIWG (While I Was Gone), so, For example: Title: Google announced wave #WIWG #3.
