Google Wave Preview

I don't usually blog on techie stuff (any more), but this is BIG! Google is previewing Google Wave. Think of it as an integrated, completely open, email, chat, wiki, weblog, photo/movie/other-rich-media sharing application that does on-the-fly instant translation, semantic-level spell check and auto-correction. It even integrates with Twitter (with a full api set and protocol definition). I just spent the last hour-and-a-half watching the demo presentation, and I am still slack-jawed at how impressive, and important, this will be. "Transformative" doesn't quite capture the potential. Right now, I'm sitting here thinking about how I could design an online course using this incredible facility. See for yourself:
