The Declaration of Independence via Google Wave

500x_googlewavedeclaration1There’s an amusing Google Wave re-enactment of the creation of the Declaration of Independence. If you playback the Wave, you can see the founding fathers bickering at each other and writing silly comments throughout.  It’s very clever.

Now that I have Google Wave, I’m not really sure what to do with it (anyone want an invitation because I’ve got eight of them), but this is a great use of the application.

“If you’ve got a Wave account, you can check out the reconstruction here. Google Wave team member, Lars Rasmussen, says the idea for the demo came from Tim O’Reilly (founder of O’Reilly Media, publisher of Make Magazine amongst other things).”  Hopefully, we see more of these shenanigans in the future.
