I've only used Wave once or twicw but I have read examples of people using Wave as a collaborative "thinking" tool.

It honestly might even be more effective and fun to do it all in a Wave... have you used Google Wave? A dynamic PR Based document could be very effective and fun.

I see potential value in fostering a mini-Yelp-like community. Restaurants can solicit thoughts and preferences from patrons, and use Buzz to drive a dialogue on the topics. They need to collect e-mail addresses though, a build a Buzz community.

It would be fun to brainstorm some ways to use Buzz for PR or Marketing purposes...

If there are 11-year old restaurant owners out there, they are all over Buzz. At least my son's 5th grade class is!

@Mark O'Toole - Google Buzz seems to be somewhat of a flop, kind of like Google Wave. There was a lot of hype, but in the end, it's just a glorified Google Reader that clutters my Gmail inbox. I think that there are far more effective tools (especially social media tools) to help in the PR aspect of things than Buzz.

So Google Buzz is launched. Has anyone tried early experiments to use this as a PR tool?
