Embed Public Or Private Google Waves On Any Website

Google Wave now gives bloggers, corporate intranets and other potential Wave users a way to let the public watch what’s going on in a Wave and, for the truly daring, invite any Wave user to edit.

Gina Trapani is demonstrating a live, public-edited Wave right now at her Smarterware post, but there are more calm, restricted uses of an embedded wave, too. Blogs can host discussions between a group of participants for all to see, with or without Wave access, and small teams working on a project can create a go-to spot that always has a relevant Wave embedded, so it doesn’t get lost in any user’s Wave inbox.

If you do go public and run into some less-than-awesome participants, read up on how to remove Wave participants and setting up access permissions.

Thought up a killer Wave use case with these public, embeddable Waves now available? Tell us about it in the comments.
