Google's Wave Tells The Story Of 2009

Google Wave hasn't quite caught on yet, at least, not with anyone I know. I've played with it a bit and have found it to be an interesting concept, but not full of much real value so far. That hasn't stopped a number of people from putting it to interesting use. This video is one of them.

Google Wave hasn't quite caught on yet, at least, not with anyone I know. I've played with it a bit and have found it to be an interesting concept, but not full of much real value so far. That hasn't stopped a number of people from putting it to interesting use. This video is one of them.My favorite use of Google Wave to-date was Ars Technica's game of Dungeons & Dragons. Classic nerd stuff. Ars summed up the experience quite nicely in its conclusion, "Wave has enough potential that it may be the Internet's best chance yet for superseding the pen-and-paper RPG experience. But it still has a ways to go before it realizes that potential." If you are a fan of role playing games, I highly suggest you read Ars' entire article.

Other uses include funny "Pulp Fiction" and "Good Will Hunting" mashups. The "Pulp Fiction" one, in particular, is hysterical in its attempt to explain what on earth Google Wave can be used for. It succeeds more as entertainment than any actual informative value, though.

This latest Google Wave exploit, which was put together by Whirled InteractiveM showcases all the things that happened in 2009 as only Google Wave could explain them. Watch and enjoy:
