Google Wave: I'm Waving! Hello? Anyone?

My Google Wave invite came through this morning. I was excited, immediately logged on and...

Waited. Eventually I bumped into four other people I kind of know and we had a little impromptu Wave of our very own.

The experience? It was a cross between email (asynchronous) and IM (synchronous) but with real time typing preview (weird, with comedic potential) and rich content sharing (took a while to work out, but the clue is in the lightbulb).

Am sure it'll be huge (purely due to the mix of synchronous and asynchronous communication - means you don't have to choose how to contact someone) but at the moment it's little more than a curiosity.
