Google Wave | This is so cool! Communicate and work in a group online in real-time

This is a long demo video but the potential for this application is going to be insane! It would be a very useful tool for class. You could use it to collaboratively take notes for study groups, create mind-maps in a group, sharing pictures with each other, and MORE.
"What is a wave?
A wave is equal parts conversation and document.People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.
A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.
A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time."
