In this mini-workshop the authors will showcase their experiment using Google Wave as a tool for 1) low-fidelity rapid prototyping, 2) record keeping, 3) establishing a consistent language, and 4) enabling both synchronous and asynchronous communication between an evaluator and a programmer. They will discuss the pros and cons of Google Wave, and then open the floor for questions and a brainstorming session on the possibilities of using Google Wave for work in the cultural heritage sector.
