Google Wave Alternatives and Export Solutions:

We're in the last week of #GoogleWave . Already in "read-only" mode, the service will be completely shut down on April 30, 2012.

1. Here is a slideshow comparing the main Wave alternatives: http://goo.gl/9LW5B

Wave in a Box - http://waveinabox.net/
Walkaround - http://wavereactor.appspot.com/
Rizzoma - http://rizzoma.com/
Co-Meeting - http://www.co-meeting.com/

2. Here is a summary of the export/import solutions at your disposal (for those of you who consider that turning your waves into static pdf files isn't really exporting):

• The main Walkaround public demo server should have enough AppEngine quota (donated by Google) to allow many(?) of you to import your waves from GWave: https://wavereactor.appspot.com/import

• Rizzoma, using a Chrome extension, can import your GWave waves. Read the instructions at: http://rizzoma.com/#for-google-wave-users

• Co-Meeting can import GWave waves without any additional extension required: While logged at http://www.co-meeting.com/ click the "Wave import (Lab)" link located near the top-right corner.

3. If you're tech-savvy enough to host and run your own Wave server, you can use Wave in a Box (WiaB) or Walkaround to import your GWave waves on your own hardware or on your own AppEngine account:

• Wave in a Box: Get the WiaB source code from Apache Wave at http://incubator.apache.org/wave/source-code.html and follow instructions in the README.import file.

• Walkaround: Get and run the code from http://code.google.com/p/walkaround/wiki/RunningTheCode and point your browser at /import on your walkaround server.

Wave on!
