Embedding Google Waves in LJ
Short, concise description of the idea
Enable Google Wave to make a post in LJ, which also embeds an entire Wave in said LJ post.
Full description of the idea
Blogspot and Wordpress already have bots or plug-ins embed Google Waves into Blogpost or Wordpress posts, and it'd be great if LJ has something like that too.
The entire wave is embedded in the post, so other Wave users can interact with the embedded wave as if they were in their own Wave clients i.e. they can edit and reply to the Wave, they can input their own content through drag and drop, they can use the Playback function etc.
For a demonstration of the Blogspot-Google Wave integration, please see minutes 3:11 to 4:15 of this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6pgxLaDdQw
And the WordPress plug-in is here: http://mashable.com/2009/09/08/google-wave-wordpress-plugin/
Resources LJ will need to implement this here: http://code.google.com/apis/wave/
- Richer user interaction without taxing LJ, since it's the Google Wave that's doing the heavy lifting.
- Integration with one of the most exciting new products on the Internet makes for a great reputation for LJ.
- There should be at least one person on the LJ Dev team who already has a Developer's Preview.
