Picture Courtesy: Thenextweb.comFrom time to time, we share videos related to the topics we cover here at Cloud Ave. The idea behind these posts is to share the videos we liked or found important with the readers of Cloud Ave. Regular readers of my post know how much I loved Google Wave. Google Wave is on death bed and even though the patient will have a slow and painful death (in spite of some efforts to save the service), there are expectations that the body parts will be used elsewhere. Since the core components are open source, anyone with an itch can take it further or integrate into their own projects. One such component is live editing feature of Google Wave. 
In the following video, Google engineer David Wang explains how collaborative editing through concurrency control and operational transform work in Google Wave. If you are a developer interested in the Wave’s realtime capabilities, this video will give you a good introduction to the technology behind live editing.
When you are on the topic, check out this take by Joe Schueller on the lessons learned from Google Wave demise. Thanks to his post for the link to the video.

Krish dons several avatars including entrepreneur in exile, analyst cum researcher, technology evangelist, blogger, ex-physicist, social/political commentator, etc.. My main focus is research and analysis on various high impact topics in the fields of Open Source, Cloud Computing and the interface between them. I also evangelize Open Source and Cloud Computing in various media outlets, blogs and other public forums. I offer strategic advise to both Cloud Computing and Open Source providers and, also, help other companies take advantage of Open Source and Cloud Computing. In my opinion, Open Source commoditized software and Cloud Computing commoditized computing resources. A combination of these two developments offers a strong competitive advantage to companies of all sizes and shapes. Due to various factors, including fear, the adoption of both Open Source and Cloud Computing are relatively slow in the business sector. So, I take it upon myself to clear any confusion in this regard and educate, enrich and advise users/customers to take advantage of the benefits offered by these technologies. I am also a managing partner in two consulting companies based in India. I blog about Open Source topics at http://open.krishworld.com and Cloud Computing related topics at http://www.cloudave.com.
