I am sitting in the presentation by Dr Lars Rasmussen from Google about the story of Google Maps and what he calls a “stealthy” project called Google Wave.

Presentations of Maps used in Hurricane Katrina, the Victorian Fires, the number of users of Google Maps Worldwide and the Volunteer map builders used in places like Zimbabwe.

Lars just mentioned that Streetview was a Stanford Project. (Which happened to be where Larry & Sergey went to University)

I just asked Lars about the issue that some people have commented about, with live presentation of text as it is typed… His response was that you adjust to the nature of this and that some people will respond before you have even corrected your spelling.

Wrapping up with what Wave is all about. I see Sharepoint squarely in the sights.

Nathan Freeman’s “Bones” application built on some very intelligent platforms (Lotus Foundations, Sonic Touch Screens, Biometric security, and a very intuitive Eclipse interface) is well worth looking at.

Nathan demonstrates the application here:

Very interesting demonstration of mashups and considerations for the clinical environment (Security, Sterility etc)

I’d have to say it is one of the most impressive implementations of collaboration technologies in an appropriate context in quite a while.

Not surprising that it is going viral in the Lotus community…
