I’m constantly looking at new technologies at Engauge. So when Google announced that I can set up my very own Wave Server, I naturally jumped on this opportunity. To speed up the process, I set up an Ubuntu server on Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and followed their instructions. And after some pain (and some help), here’s the result:
The above is a screenshot of the console client of me connecting to our Wave Server. If you’re old school, you’ll recognize the telnet-like screenshot. Unfortunately, it is nothing like the slick Wave client that Google provides.
That got me thinking — are there no good Wave Clients out there?
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve used Waveboard and I think that federating a Google Wave server is cool but what I really want to do is to share the Google Wave love with those at our company that do not have a Wave account at the moment.
