    12. Tweetdeck Review Kim Woodbridge from (Anti) Social Development reviews: She had Tweetdeck open for 5 days and it is used over 600MB of memory. She had heard people report 1GB of usage. If the computer and Tweetdeck was left running all of the time, then Tweetdeck needed to be restarted periodically

    13. Tweetdeck Review (cont) If you accidentally close the group pane, you will lose that group. Once you have a large network, scrolling through all of the users to recreate the group is tedious. It is best to wait 24 hours of actively running Tweetdeck before creating a group, because people in your network will not show up in the list until they tweet. It generally takes 24 hours for everyone to say something at least once. Something she only noticed recently is that all users show up in the list for creating a group even if you have unfollowed them. It increases the number of users to scroll through when creating the group.

    14. Tweetdeck Review (cont) Tweetdeck, with only 3 panes open, is a big program. It’s best used on a second monitor. Overall, Tweetdeck is one of the best 3rd party applications for Twitter access and management.

    16. Google Wave Google Wave is a product that helps users communicate and collaborate on the web. A "wave" is equal parts conversation and document, where users can almost instantly communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. Google Wave is also a platform with a rich set of open APIs that allow developers to embed waves in other web services and to build extensions that work inside waves.

    18. Google Wave API Google Wave API allows developers to use and enhance Google Wave through two primary types of development: Extensions: Build robot extensions to automate common tasks or build gadget extensions to provide a new way for users to interact Embed: Make your site more collaborative by dropping in a wave. The Embed API now includes support for Anonymous (read-only) Access of embedded public waves, allowing users without a Google Wave account to view the wave content.

    20. Radio waving Clear Channel in Greensboro, North Carolina used a wave called Big Game Home Invasion. It’s an on air and on line promotion involving two clients. They did an entire project in wave in just a fraction of the amount of time it would normally have taken.

    21.

    23. Debatewise Global Youth Panel: Waving on climate change Google Wave was used by the Global Youth Panel to debate climate change in parallel with the Copenhagen conference. Global Youth Panel is a group of 1,000 young people from over 130 different countries To organize the debates, they created one index wave containing links to all the debates, each of which had its own set of sub-waves, one for each point making up the debate.

    29. 5 Tips for Using Google Wave to Write an Academic Paper Lay Out Specific Rules and Guidelines Consider Meeting in the Same [Physical] Room There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Idea Separate Content as Much as Possible Into Blips Experiment

    30. Pros & Cons for Google Wave Pros: Wave really is extraordinary collaborating in a live document The entire process is sped up There was ownership for everyone involved Playback is really nice Indented replies are useful

    31. Pros & Cons for Google Wave (cont) Cons: What about footnotes? - If you wanted to use footnotes, you would have to write the whole paper, then cut and paste the paper from Google Wave into Microsoft Word to add them Drag and drop blips? - Sometimes, it’s a bit tedious to clean-up a wave to prevent it from becoming too messy. You would have to cut and paste the content in order to move it, but the blips should have some drag and drop functionality to wave

    32. Pros & Cons for Google Wave (cont) I wish Wave were faster – Google Wave running in Firefox or Safari, had a much more laggier experience than it running in Chrome The experience was sometimes a bit chaotic - It is easy to get lost in a wave once you start throwing out ideas and replying to different blips. Wave does not organize your content for you. Any final formatting had to be done in Microsoft Word

    33. OpenSocial OpenSocial defines a common API for social applications across multiple websites. With standard JavaScript and HTML, developers can create apps that access a social network's friends and update feeds. Social gadgets are XML files, sometimes known as gadget specifications.

    34. OpenSocial (cont) "Hello World" gadget (helloworld.xml): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <Module> <ModulePrefs title="Hello World!"> <Require feature="opensocial-0.8" /> </ModulePrefs> <Content type="html"> <![CDATA[ Hello, world! ]]> </Content> </Module>

    35. OpenSocial (cont) <Module> indicates that this XML file contains a gadget. <ModulePrefs> contains information about the gadget, and its author. <Require feature="opensocial-0.8" /> denotes a required feature of the gadget — in this case, the OpenSocial API (v0.8). <Content type="html"> indicates that the gadget's content type is HTML. This is the recommended content type for OpenSocial containers, but gadgets for other containers such as iGoogle support other content types. <![ CDATA[…]]> contains the bulk of the gadget, including all of the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (or references to such files). The content of this section should be treated like the content of the body tag on a generic HTML page

    36. OpenSocial (cont) Running your first gadget: A text editor, or the Google Gadget Editor (GGE) Web hosting, or the built-in hosting in the GGE A Google account Access to the iGoogle sandbox
