  5. i know it is still early since google wave isnt ‘out’ yet but when i first saw the wave demo i thought that would be cool for comments/forums in wordpress.

    wondering if anyone has heard anything about a plugin that can handle that?

    truthfully i’m not privy to sandbox so i don’t know its complete functionality or capability but theoretically it seems possible…

  7. Try the Notifiy robot. It sends you emails whenever a wave is updated. Its available at: http://wave-email-notifications.appspot.com or just add wave-email-notifications@appspot.com to any wave.
