To say that 2009 has been the year of Google Wave might be a stretch. It was introduced this year, and invites have been sent out to quite a few people now. It has been the subject of a fair amount of discussion, but it hasn’t reached the mainstream yet.

Another Google Wave video has surfaced, uploaded to YouTube by RockYourWhirled (via LifeHacker).  It recaps the year with Google Wave. It fits in pretty well with the rest of the year-end discussion, and shows how Google Wave can be used to communicate ideas at the same time.

Google Wave was introduced back in May. You can view our coverage of the product from then until now by going here.
