Got invites as well. PM if you want them.

Basically it's what EtherPad's done for a long time but supporting more protocols. Not very impressive from a technological perspective.

Just got it a few days ago (already gave away all my invites).

I don't feel that it's useless.

It allows for extremely complex conversations to take place.

You can talk about the first topic, break off into sub-topics, create new main topics, etc.

It gets really neat when you have 4-5 people in a wave all discussing various topics.

I find it pointless in the way that I already have forums/facebook/twitter/msn/whatever and google wave doesn't do anything amazing enough to make me want ANOTHER way to talk to friends online.

After using it for a while, I have realized that the thing with Wave isn't that it isn't a fantastic idea (because it is) but that they marketed it to the wrong people. Considering the amount of ways to communicate with your friends out there, we hardly need another one.
What it really is good for, is project planning and distributed work. It's perfect for managing teams and keeping track of the work of each individual member.
