Google's "Wave" Blurs Chat, Email, Collaboration Software 170 170

Developers are being invited to join an open source project that has been formed to create a Google Wave Federation Protocol, which will underlie the system.

Developers can also work on embedding waves into websites, or creating multimedia robots and gadgets that can be incorporated within the Google Wave client."
