What else would you talk about when you land on Wave but … Wave?
I’m in about 20 Waves now (posted discussions where lots of people contribute) and the main topic is How to Use This Darn Google Wave.
And third: Adelaide’s new social media grouping, #socadl, and what its objectives are.
Wave is quite difficult to read right now. Waves tend to become very lengthy, and it’s not obvious how to dive in and head straight to the updates only. I tend to re-read posts and become lost. (@theskullcave recently gave me the hot tip: using your PgDown key to get to the end. Ooops. Thanks. See what an expert I am, peeps).
Everyone’s new to Wave. So very few of us know how to organise it yet. Discussions go off on tangents and the Wave just gets longer and longer.
In time, I guess we’ll learn how to focus. To post on one very clear topic (or document) and stick to it. (Or how to use our keyboard to greater effect).
As one Twitter friend put it: Wave seems too much like work. (@derekandkong). True, so far. But I’m going to stick with it to see how it evolves. Same as I did with Twitter.
