Google Wave is a new personal communication and collaboration tool that was launched to 100,000 users in October 2009, with each user asked to invite twenty other users.
The platform combines elements of e-mail, instant messaging, social networks and wikis in documents called waves, that can be edited at any point in the conversation. The complete threads, called blips, are stored on a central server, allowing any user to add or remove any of the messaged content from their personal devices at any time.
Any participant in the "wave" can reply or edit any part of it, as well as add others to it. Google Wave's web interface uses the Google Web Toolkit and is written in Java using Open JDK. Essentially a more advanced form of network communication, Google Wave allows for more collaboration among multiple users simultaneously and in real time.
You'll find bloggers talking about Google Wave at sites like Google Blog and Google System.
