A new Google Labs project, Shared Spaces leverages more than 50 gadgets, or mini-apps from Google Wave to let people collaborate with planning and productivity tools, Sudoku puzzles and polls with one other user. There are gadgets for maps, YouTube, Twitter and other utilities. Users, who may browse among gadgets here and use a Google, Twitter or Yahoo account to sign in, may also chat with their collaborators in real time. JavaScript developers will be able to build their own gadgets for Shared Spaces in time. “A shared space turns a (Wave) gadget into a standalone collaborative application,” explained Douwe Osinga, software engineer for Google’s Shared Spaces, in a blog post Dec. 21. “Just click on the gadget you’re interested in to start a new shared space, and then simply send the URL around to share it with your friends and colleagues.
