Five cool websites/apps to explore while you wait for your Google Wave invitation


So you didn’t get a Google Wave invitation today then? Nope, me neither. So I think between us we have two alternatives. One is to hop off down to eBay and buy one for £35 – though I have to admit I think the chances of it popping up in our inboxes are pretty remote. The second is to go searching round the web for sites and apps that work in a similar way to Google Wave. And that’s exactly what I have done.

Before we get carried away I should stress that Google Wave is a pretty unique product and these in no way replicate all of what it does. Rather some of them replicate some of what Google Wave does in that they offer interesting online collaboration or messaging solutions. So here then are five to have a play with.
