Non-textual stuff in waves. Bring more meaning, by making it visual and non-text.

Concurrent editing. Gadget needs to highlight who edits what, cursor position, etc.

Gadget should clearly show what your state is, as well as other participants state.

Viewing mode - read only - no state edits - privacy mode - user’s can see who is looking at page.

Edit mode - editing toolbar - no longer anonymous - changes affect global state.


Bad example: cartoony, translates all text into image, prevents edits, removes collaboration.

You shouldn’t require a special language for robot usage, instead parse natural text. Different robots will end up with different syntax, that may not be human readable. Don’t treat Wave as the command line. Symantic analysis.
