Google Wave for collaborative note taking at events

Google Wave, an emerging real-time online collaboration software by Google, will have very significant applications for meetings. Think of it as email, SMS, text messaging, file/photo sharing, a wiki and much more combined. My next blog posting and my newsletter will focus on several of these options. In the meantime, a great introductory video about Google Wave can be found below:

Google Wave was used for collaborative note taking at a recent ECOMM conference. This will be one of many applications including:

  • Developing a collaborative meeting agenda
  • Meeting invitations
  • Group brainstorming
  • Back-channel conversation tool (such a Twitter) for events
  • Group reports and follow up
  • Photo and file sharing for events
  • Conference feedback

The video below shows how the collaborative note taking was done.
