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?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
