This actually sounds fearfully interesting. Are you thinking of putting SACC volunteers into your wave?

Subject: [SACC-L] Anyone Interested?
I am not sure if anyone has yet raised the topic of "Google Wave"...It is a new development by Google that gives participants the ability to put email, chat, video conferencing, conference calls, document collaboration, mind mapping (flow-charting), link sharing and more, all in one application. Users create "waves" that are clusters of participants, and their shared work/communications. It is build on the idea that participants can also create other modules that can be brought into waves, and waves themselves can be brought into external applications like blogs. And you thought Twitter was pushing it!!
Anyway, right now in order to try out Google Wave, you have to be invited. Google did this same thing with gmail years ago, and with docs. This is their way of preventing a flood of users crashing down on them, while those who take part can experiment, troubleshoot, suggest developments, share experiments etc.
I have a Wave account, and with it comes 20 invitations to share with others. I have used a few already (waves need wavers!!) and would be happy to share with people in the SACC who might be interested to see what it can do for us/you. If you are interested, let me know (you would need a Google account to start with). Then I can send you an invitation, which will be processed by Google in a week or so after they receive it.
If you are curious to know more, go to wave.google.com and you'll find a video there that explains in more detail.
