This brings up a point of curiosity for me. To succeed as a DBA requires a bit of focus. The more interruptions you receive, the harder it is to perform DBA tasks without error. So when new stuff like Google Wave comes along my reaction is "great, I should sign up for more interruptions". Is that reasonable or am I just getting to be a curmudgeon?

Well, Wave is still in beta, so naturally there are still some bugs. I too wish there would be gmail notifications whenever waves get updated. I think, however, there may be a gadget for that.

Voice seems to integrate nicely into gmail for me. Getting text versions of voicemails is certainly nice.

As for buzz, well, it seems to be a twitter clone. Not sure of any good uses for it.

My biggest gripe about wave and voice was that it did not seem to integrate with gmail. Not sure if I am doing it wrong, but it was like I had to add users separately outside of my gmail address book. Like it was a whole new service so I didn't bother to try and leverage it.

Anyone find a way? is it integrated better now since buzz?

Hi all,
I would like to know if any of you are using Google Wave, and if so, how.
