No people I'm not a bot. Just curious since these invites are hard to come by and I'd like to give back to the community. And I second the *beep* YOU MOTHER*beep*IN SPAMMER BOTS. I DONT WANT A FREE PS3. I DONT WANT TO SAVE THE QUEEN OR JOIN YOU IN YOUR QUEST. And how is showing boobs going to get me to play a video game?

You don't want a free PS3? Okay, I'll take two of them, then.

I received a Google Wave invite from somebody in my research group today. Apparently, lots of people are trying it.

But even after watching the YouTube video, I still don't really understand what it is.

Who wants to bet that it won't gain popularity?

Popularity isn't what's relevant. I care more about whether or not it's useful and whether I will enjoy using it.

I agree with MT. If Markost's description of it is correct and it does what it's advertised to do, it'll likely catch on. Necessity is often the root of popularity.
