We have two books available for your review this week: Google Wave: Up and Running, which we're offering as an ebook review copy (available in ePub, mobi, PDF, and Android formats), and Building Web Reputation Systems.
Catch Google Wave, the revolutionary Internet protocol and web service that lets you communicate and collaborate in realtime. With this book, you'll understand how Google Wave integrates email, instant messaging (IM), wiki, and social networking functionality into a powerful and extensible platform. You'll also learn how to use its features, customize its functions, and build sophisticated extensions with Google Wave's open APIs and network protocol.
What do Amazon's product reviews, eBay's feedback score system, Slashdot's Karma System, and Xbox Live's Achievements have in common? They're all examples of successful reputation systems that enable consumer websites to effectively manage and present user contributions. This book shows you how to design and develop reputation systems for your own sites or web applications, and is written by experts who have designed web communities for Yahoo! and other prominent sites.
