www.googlewave.com

This looks fantastic! It launches today but you need an invite to join (like Gmail a few years back).

I signed up months ago but wasn't lucky enough to receive an invite from Google. I don't suppose anyone here got one and would be willing to invite me would they? :)

edit: Still no email :(

Yeah, I signed up months ago - no sign of an invite though...

It looks great, hope it lives up to the hype.

Oh, apparently the invites aren't being sent out by Google until 4pm BST, and each user then gets 5 to send... so thats in about 2hrs 40m :) Here's hoping!

For anybody with an invite... Don't forget to invite your good buddy, Slippy !!!

Hold on there, cowboy!

That's what everyone said about instant messaging. Google Wave is simply instant messaging on steriods. This is something that Microsoft Communicator (for corporations) has had for a while.

Having said that, I would love to try it out. So, if any of you have any invites burning a hole in your pocket, just send one my way, will ya?? :D

Embeddable waves are something I'm looking forward to trying out!
09/30/2009 12:37:09 PM · #13
I just requested an invite. If I get one I'll share what I can.

I agree.. This is going to change email completely. I don't think it will be over night, but I'm excited to jump on board.

Well, I've now got Google Wave and only one person I know has it too. Which makes for very boring conversations, since she's ignoring me. *sigh*

Anyone else get an account yet? Once I've got invites to give I'll be back (I have a couple of friends from other places that come first though).
10/25/2009 05:45:19 PM · #17
anybody get an invite i'd love one!
10/25/2009 05:50:18 PM · #18
I was given an account when it was in developer preview. I couldn't find any use for Google Wave though. Why would I want to watch someone compose a message in real time? Seems kind of ridiculous now that I think about it.
10/25/2009 06:03:43 PM · #19
Members should post invites and here and do it first come first served
10/25/2009 07:41:00 PM · #20
I have a few invites left. PM me your email addy.

ETA: Include your email address in your PM, I need an email address to send the invite to. And I suspect you'll need to create a google account anyway, so if you already have a gmail address, use that one.

All gone.

Google anticipate a spam tsunami?

just point me to the blackberry app

"Google Wave - Email, with indents"
10/27/2009 04:34:34 AM · #24
That's all my invites used up! - Hopefully the people who PM'd me will get the google email.

So if another google waver wants to take up the invites baton in this thread, feel free.
