Listen to these guys. Then buy their album.

I'll be purchasing Caravan Palace ASAP. I've found a group that embodies the music I love. Apparently it's called Electro Swing. I haven't heard a single one I haven't liked yet. aOriginally this post had an embedded Grooveshark song or playlist, but I can't be certain which since Grooveshark isn't up anymore. Instead I've embedded one of their videos.

Karma: A Way to Keep Wavers In Line?

Here's a neat little gadget/bot combo that could prove very useful for public waves if the system caught on.

Add the Karma Gadget and Bot to your waves and use it to rate your users (out of five stars). If users get consistently low scores, they will be automatically kicked from Waves that choose to turn on this option.

Restore a Wave to a former state, or make it Read-Only.

In the first major update to the Google Wave client in what feels like ages, the Wave team have implemented two new features that will make a big difference in managing your waves. The first fixes one of the most shocking things about the first release: that anyone you invited could come along and edit any part of your wave. Of course the point of Wave is collaboration, but sometimes it was conceivable that you might not like anyone to be able to hack away at a wave, particularly once a wave was made public. Many good useful waves were effectively destroyed by granting the public editing rights.
