GoogleWave has caused much noise among geeks. Li Zunlong spared me an invitation and I finally got my google wave account. I logged in and out and nothing seemed to happen until today when I learnt how to search for public Wave. It is exciting! Well, I am not sure it is a revolution yet, but it certainly is very different from any existing web-based applications!
Very soon I wanted to start a public wave (topic) myself. I searched google and found nothing and I searched inside GoogleWave and found this (sorry that I don’t know who this article should be attributed to):
How To Find Public Waves
you search group:[email protected]. To find only English waves search lang:en. Add tags to refine your search: tag:wavedev for example. (Add your friends to this wave so they can see these directions.). See step 4 below for a list of tags you can search. You can remove blogger posts with -with:[email protected]
You can also search for “with:public” to read all the WAAVVVESS.
If you are just getting started and need help, try searching group:[email protected]
How To Make Public Waves
1. add [email protected] (not googlewave!) to your contacts in the lower left, using the (+) next to “Manage contacts”.
It will say the account doesn’t exist, PRESS the Enter Key to add anyway! (not click the button)
2. Add this public contact to a wave you want to have be made public
3. A Yellow/Beige bar will appear saying “Everyone has access to this wave.” This means the wave is public.
