Google Wave in Thunderbird

I’ve been on Google Wave now for a few weeks, but I haven’t done very much with it yet. First of all: I was very willing to give away my invitations, but only two people asked for it, so I have 23 invitations left! Nobody to wave with 🙁
All the same: there are some public waves, e.g. #dotastro; so I followed this wave for a while.
Now, there is a way to read your waves inside Thunderbird, that is if you upgraded to version 3. Thunderbird has tabbed e-mailreading in the newest version, so Wave opens in another tab and it will stay open if you restart Thunderbird. That makes living with Wave easier.
Wave has also been integrated with Google Groups recently. Gina Trapani has created The Complete Guide to Google Wave Wavers group (of course she wants you to read her book), that you can join (with your Google account) and then read and update in Wave. (and that again in your Thunderbird e-mailclient).

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
