I'm really excited about Google Wave. It's so exciting and it's got so much potential! I watched the video of the unveiling presentation where they went through and showed everything it could do, it was awesome. About conversations getting impossible to read because of non-temporized (I am making up this word) edits - isn't there a function that "plays" the messages one at a time in the order they were received so you can see what order edits were made while you were gone?

(Sorry if this is illegible, high-femming and srs posting don't go well together.)

Yes there is - the one drawback to it is you can't just "play" an individual wavelet (damned if I'm going to call it a blip ;)). At the moment it only plays the whole wave. This is problematic if it's a huuuuuge wave with lots of people, you have to sit there and watch the whole thing until you see just the one you want. I hope they change that.

I was invited and just set mine up! But I don't know enough people who have it for it to be useful at all.
