Blogging about Wave

Have just received an invitation to Google Wave. Included in the invite was 8 invites I can share with other people. I have invited 2 other people so that I can at least try and test out what Google Wave is all about. But from what I have gathered, the activating of one’s invites is a manual process and can take a while. I see that I have 2 other Contacts that is using Wave — Paul and Nafisa, I might just include you in some stuff I play with to see how it works 🙂  If there is anybody out there that is using Wave and want to add me to your Waves to experiment/play with some stuff, then you are more than welcome.

I used Google Wave to write this blog post, but had to manually add it to my blog. It would be nice if there was an Extention in Wave to integrate with one’s blogging platform and one can post directly to one’s blog.

One thing that I found that does not work is CNTRL-Z (undo) in the editor. Would have thought that something like this would work. CNTRL-C and CNTRL-V does work.

I will be back when I have mastered some of what Wave has to offer and give my opinion on it.

Cat in window — no worries in the world.

Every morning when I get up and look out my bedroom window, I saw this cat sitting in the neighbours window.  He/she just sits there and stares … I always wonder what he/she look at and what is going on in it’s head.

Why can’t our lives as humans not be as simple.  This cat probably has no worries in the world and is as happy as can be.

This picture was taken with my new Canon PowerShot SX20IS which I received earlier this week as replacement for my stolen camera.  Except for cropping and resizing, I have done nothing to that picture.

4 day week — I can live with that.

According to this article on NewScientist

The four-day week could boost employment, save energy and make us happier.


If one really think about this, it makes a lot of sense.  In the state of Utah, they actually experimented with it and energy fell by 13% and employees were much happier, even though they worked the same amount of hours in the week. 

Now I just wonder if my company, IBM will allow me to do this.  Then again we can in any case work from home if and when it suits us.  It is a known fact that around the world, IBM only has office space and desks for about 50% of their staff.  The rest, either work on customer sites or at home.
