I have a few Google Wave invites available if anyone out there would like one, just leave me a comment and put make sure you put your correct e-mail address into the DISQUS commenting system.
Wave is pretty slick and if you need to do some online collaboration and don’t mind a fairly open environment then this is the perfect product for you. Wave is NOT a replacement for e-mail, instant messaging, or your online social networks, although it pulls in components from all of those types of communication.
To win you had to pick the 5 most popular startups out of a field of 100, and the popularity was judged by several different standards. I picked 4 out of the 5 companies to win, my top 5 were (in alphabetical order)
Mill River Labs (owns tradesvibes)
The winning companies are all the same except the surprising result that Acquia is out and Rearden Commerce is in. Check them out and you tell me if you wouldn’t have made the same choice I did.
Thanks to TradeVibes for running the contest and offering such a generous prize!
