Google has just opened up Google Wave to everyone. When it was originally released to a limited number of people for beta testing everyone was very excited about it, but after about a week or two it was being written off as a dud. I suspect there will be a resurgence in interest in it, now that it has been opened up, and that in a year or two people will be using for all sorts of things. I'm intending to set up public waves for interesting LGAM pages for anyone interested in discussing the content in a neutral forum to do so. I'm also going to try and use Wave to try and hold virtual meetings on Local Government related issues on a regular basis. If anyone has any suggestions for discussion topics please leave a comment here.
Google Wave sounds great.
I would like to join in a test with you but unfortunately I am restricted on what I can do and look at at WSC.
Needed to download "Chrome" for my Internet Explorer but not allowed at WSC!!!!!
Have registered separately (new account) as MatrixIP, which I use from home and outside WSC.
Perhaps we can link up thru this account at an appropriate time when I am not in office. I can send you details of my availability under separate cover.
Discussion topic of my interest currenlty is on Timber bridges - load limits and other bridge management issues.
Program Leader - Road Asset Management
Logan City Council
I have started a public wave where anyone can list asset management related topics that they would like to discuss with other Local Government people. The plan is to wait until a significant number of people have registered their interest in a given topic (by commenting on the wave) and then scheduling a meet up time to try and thrash out the issue.
