Bye First Waves. I hardly knew you.
So I'm hanging out on Google+. I mean literally of course - the second aor third? new social network that Google has launched in the last couple of years has a "hangout" feature where you can chat with lots of friends simultaneously via video. I've never tried it, so I'm sitting here in the hopes […]
Since my last post more than a year ago, a lot has happened to Google Wave. Within months of opening Wave up to everyone at the Google I/O conference, Google pulled the plug, and Wave gurgled down the drain. That left me feeling somewhat foolish, as I'd dedicated a good portion of my time to […]

I was visiting Pamela Fox's personal website, and noticed she had a Wave This! button attached to her latest post. Interested in what it did, I clicked it and it opened a summary of that post in Wave ready to share with others!
