After asking question , You declared it next big thing

By looking at googl'e social networking history , Its actually called BETA mess. without any doubt it will be somewhat hit in india big hit in brazil and again big hit in google..

facebook and twitter are the finest communication / collaboration tools that exist and personally I am quite happy with it ..

Trust Google to do something better with an old application - they did it with mail and now with this. Very cool, far beyond what Facebook and Twitter can do.

I have tested this thing. Smart and nice. But I didn't die testing it. Wave will matter to some. But I'll move on. Hardly a necessity to try, to someone already fine (e-socially engaged lol).

I have got a few PMs too. I can't see anywhere to send out an invite. I think (maybe) only new wave accounts are able to send out invites. I have access since it was first announced at Google I/O event. If I happen to get in touch with someone having them, I'll let you know.

The most interesting and most innovative and most useful feature I think is the playback option.

I have been part of lot of HUGE email threads where it's just impossible to read the final version of the email and nobody knows what's going on. Playback is exactly the solution to this problem.

Still waiting for the invite :(

Edit: I found a video on the problem I was talking about.
