For those of you who haven’t checked out Google’s Wave, you should. Wave is many things, but if I had to give it a label, I would call it an excellent Document Collaboration Commander! Wave is the first place I go to write my blogs. It helps to jot down notes quickly; it keeps the document on the internet so I have access to it from any computer; and allowing a friend to review my blog is as easy as adding them as a participant (thanks Mike). When Mike and I need to write something for Club AJAX, we jump on Wave and both start banging out ideas. We don’t have to worry about duplicated efforts, because we can see what the other is writing, even as we are writing it. In fact, this synchronization usually propagates more ideas. You’ve heard me trumpet the paperless office before – think how much money Wave saves you from the multiple times of printing that document, proofing, highlighting edits, scribbling in the margins, changing, saving, and reprinting. Wave is a fantastic, free productivity and collaboration tool. But is it all that it could be?

Last Tuesday’s meeting was a big success. Dion Hinchcliffe was fact filled, enlightening and entertaining as always. After the meeting I personally felt the urge to go back to my company and tell them all the business opportunities that are currently available. We are very proud and very lucky to have had him speak at our group!
Of course, Club AJAX has posted plenty of videos before, but starting with this one they are now hosted and edited by BetterVideo™. No longer are they stationary camera shots. They are now professional edited and slickly produced! Going by the standards of YUI Theater, the new BetterVideo-produced Club AJAX videos exceed them in quality! Of course the video already had great content thanks to Dion, but now our videos are and will be that much more watchable.
The prediction of the iPad has been around at least since the days of Star Trek. As Captain Kirk explored the final frontier solving intergalactic problems, he ever so effortlessly completed his paperwork. But it’s the future, where there is no paperwork. The yeoman hands Captain Kirk an electronic slate, complete with electronic pen at the top. Kirk signs the log almost subconsciously so he can get back to torpedoing Klingons into space dust.
