    Oh yeah, so I don't have to reply to all the PM's.
    It takes 2-3 days for the invite to show up.

    I have 13 left, if we run out and your comfortable with a non board member having your email addy I have friends that have invites left.

    Also please remember Wave is still in beta, its about 85% functional. Its already a neat tool, when it goes 1.0 its going to be awesome.

    Imagine a group being able to think tank, plan, coordinate,andminister, and follow a mission trip all on one page.

    Wave is hard to explain, anyome that make use of technology in their ministry should at least check out their presentation video and see if its something they could use.

    (I sound like a Google cheerleader.)

    "post from the Blackberry..lol Two/To fat thumbs for to small a keyboard."

    My daughter-in-law got a blackberry and I told her that someone could make a billion bucks if they would design software that would figure out which of the three buttons you meant to press on each keystroke. :laugh:

    I'm not totally clear in what Google Wave is. In what ways will y'all be using it?

    The sad thing is, after carrying a Blackberry around for 4 year I type quicker with two thumbs than I do with all my fingers...


    PJ.. Wave is kinda like a combined Email,Chatroom,Bullitenboard open only to those you include... Your able to post photos,videos, spreadsheet, simple Yes/No/Maybe dicision widgets....

    We are currently using it to administor our food program. When we give/receive we post the data in the Wave.. We needed new shelving... Posted up a few options and let the folk running it vote for what they wanted... Scheduling is tons easier now.. What used to take a dozen calls or emails is handled all in one place...

    Its a bit overhyped... But it is a handy thing to have.
