Adopts Google Wave Federation Protocol with their StreamWork
Seeing all these announcements prove what Google I/O truly stands for…
According to Vic Gundotra, Engineering Vice-President of Google, I/O embodies the spirit of the Web, a spirit of collaboration, a spirit of inclusiveness rather than exclusiveness, and, a spirit of innovation and of openness.
I/O also stands for two most important elements of Web Culture: Innovation in the Open.
I’m really pleased with the announcement of open access to Wave for all at the opening keynote at Google IO.
The IO team at the fireside.
The part that we are most interested in is that wave is availed on my domain, like all the other Google apps. We covered this earlier on Testing Google Wave for Apps. So that means that everyone can start to use wave for organizing their organization. I really believe that there is a large potential for using Wave in organizations instead of using mail to all communication. I have in countless examples seen email been used where wave would have made decisions would have been made much easier.
With our product caseish, that helps you and your group can get at much better insight on what is going on with your status. We see that there is a fantastic opportunity for selling our application on the Google Apps Market place, because we support organization or groups collaborate better. With the apps market place we are able to monetize our application fairly easy since we just need to connect to the apps market place and then we can start with getting customers aboard. We though still need a little way to go before we are ready to launch to the apps market place.
I had also hoped that there would be an announcement on a Wave marketplace, so it also was possible to sell apps to individuals like games or other features. I talked with the Wave team and found that the issue they had with it was the complexity of how such a market place should work. There are defiantly a lot of legal issues that needs to be addressed before it is possible to sell application for Wave on that account.
There was also all the API changes that I’m going to look into in the coming weeks.
Caseish is given the chance to participate. And, with this opportunity, I will be presenting our own applications namely, Google Wave Robots and API to integrate with Wave, AppEngine to control the robot and Google Visualization API to display graphs.
The last period has been quite hectic. My team and I have been working on creating a release version of Caseish. Unfortunately, we have not yet succeeded in achieving all the goals that we had created. But, we are still on the positive side and there will always be room for improvements.
We have developed Caseish as a tool for organizing your Waves in an easy-to-create way. Here, is a demo of Caseish in the video below.
We will be presenting the application at Google IO developer sandbox. Come by and have a talk about the application and give some feedback on what you think of this tool. If you are not at Google IO, you can tweet us at http://twitter.com/caseish or Wave us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During my time at IO, I hope to record some of what other developers have already done and share those with you. I’m looking forward to see what is current and what new improvements they are going to announce.
