Google Wave: Get Your Invites Here!

    By Jeremy Tuesday, October 13, 2009

    I just got invited to preview Google Wave, the new beast of a web-app from Google said to replace/integrate e-mails/IMs/Tweets/Online Collaborative Environments/Chat Rooms and all other sorts of internet communication. Whether it actually will or not is a topic deserving of another post entirely, but for now, I'll be glad to hand out a few invites so you can judge for yourself.



    I'm not going to give these out randomly, I want some creativity on your part! So, how do you get one of my invites/nominations? Simple, comment on this post with how you will use Google Wave in a Christ-centric fashion. The more creative (yet practical/useful), the better your chances of getting added to the invitation list.


    Maybe you're a priest that sees real value in the collaborative features of Google Wave and can explain how it will help your church. Or, maybe you're a software developer who can think of a really neat Google Wave Extension to develop that integrates into Christianity somehow.

    Whatever your idea may be, just post it in the comments below along with the e-mail address of where to send your Google Wave invite to (be sure to use scr.im to avoid spam-bots) and I'll pick 7 of you to nominate. Deadline is about a week or two, depending on number of submissions.

    Good luck!

    UPDATE: Be sure to provide some sort of credentials. Eg: If it's for a ministry, link to it. If you're a software developer, show some stuff you've made, etc. Be creative!

    1. I really want to used for young adults ministry in my church, collaborative features will help getting youth more involved and having a good time with useful material as well.

    2. I really don't have a central idea to apply this to. But would like to share an invite with a teacher at my catholic school, he might have some great ideas. I'm a software developer myself (well, I'm learning), so maybe the teacher and I can do something for the kids and parents.

    3. I would use Google Wave to help coordinate and teach my Sabbath School lesson that I facilitate each week. Also, I'd allow some of the members of the church to use my invite to preview the new technology for themselves :) I also tweeted to you on twitter. @marcusnewton

    5. For web conferences you should try http://www.showdocument.com ,
      Great for online teaching and collaborating. I use it for working on my designs with other in my field.
      Its free and pretty simple - you just upload your file and invite others to view it together.

    6. I would use it to help my church stay technologically up to date in order to make the Word of God more accessible to today's youth. Church's site: http://www.fbctlh.org/

    7. Hi,

      I would like to see it for myself, nothing really righteous, honestly.

    8. I'm a developer eager to work on bringing Wave based utilities to the mobile web. It's difficult to work with the service without an account though. :)

    9. I'm a web developer for (StShenoudaJC.org,Nihov.org,CopticSociety.com) and a Coptic Society E-Board member. Coptic Society is a campus fellowship. I wished to aquire a google wave account in hopes of better collaboriting events such as our winter retreats and such in order to increase productivity and efficiently plan such things.
