If you're running the Wave Reference Server I would suggest that now is the time to update and rebuild it. In the latest release of the code, the guys at Google have added "Agent" support and an echoeyagent to demonstrate how to write your own Agents.
Agents fulfil the same roles as Robots in the Wavesandbox, being programmatic participants in the wave which respond to other users.
So let's see who can write the first third party agent.

I'm a parent to three wonderful and sometimes wonderfully frustrating children. Each of them has gone through that stage where they see something they like and believe they need to cram as much as they can in their mouth at once. You parents out there know this bit, their eyes bug out as they realise that they can't move their jaws because they're crammed to overflowing. What usually results is a huge mess and tears.

Many moons ago, the Australian Government decided that it was in its best interests to ensure that the exiting TV Networks got the lions share of the digital spectrum, effectively killing off any thought of competition by restricting non-players to "data-casting" (which I think roughly translates to "You've got two chance's, Buckleys and None").

Okay so now that you've got the WRS all setup and federated, you're talking to people around the world with the console client and wondering what to do next.
Well personally I think the next thing to do is have a look at what needs to be added to the WRS to move it beyond "Reference" and into something that can be used to really explore the Wave Concept.
Below is what I think the WRS is going to need and why:
The WRS needs a web based client for a couple of reasons.

With all the Waving I've been doing lately I thought I'd break the monotony by doing a quick update about the Garden.
Over the winter we pulled out the zuchinnis and squash and for a while the beds lay unused. I turned them over occasionally but couldn't really get enthused about growing anything. Then my mum gifted us with a few packets of seeds and a few punnets of Broccoflower and I finally got back into the planting mood.
So to date we have:

Okay I've got version 0.1 of a WRS installer script here.
It's a bash script and has been pretty well tested in Ubuntu. It does have an alternative for Redhat based distro's but this is basically untested. The script itself is meant to manage the downloading and installing of the various pieces of software required to setup the server. It doesn't handle the Openfire management or DNS setup you will require.

When Google announced the new Wave technology at the IO conference earlier this year they made a promise. That not only would the Protocols be Open, but they would also be Open Sourcing "the Lions Share" of the code they were developing for the Wave.

A while ago i registered the domain planetgov20.com so I could have a place to put any Gov20 projects I was working on. It started out as a simple blogroll of Gov20 blogs from around the country and then languished there awaiting new inspiration.
