Google Wave is more fun when you have others to wave with, so please nominate people you would like to add. Keep in mind that this is a preview so it could be a bit rocky at times.
Invitations will not be sent immediately. We have a lot of stamps to lick.
So . . If you still have not got one , comment here …
Father: What would you like for your birthday son?
Son: A google wave invite!
Father: Whats google wave?
Son: Its “a personal communication and collaboration tool” announced by Google at the Google I/O conference on May 27, 2009. It is a web-based service, computing platform, and communications protocol designed to merge e-mail, instant messaging, wikis, and social networking. It has a strong collaborative and real-time focus supported by extensions that can provide, for example, spelling/grammar checking, automated translation among 40 languages, and numerous other extensions. Initially released only to developers, a “preview release” of Google Wave was extended to nearly 1 million users beginning September 30, 2009, with the initial 100,000 users each allowed to invite up to twenty additional users.
Father: …. interesting…. (gives the son a strange look) Where could I find one?
Son: Well you can buy one on ebay for around $50.
Father: $50! For a service that will be free in a few months?
Son: But DADDY! I really want one!
Father: If you can find one free you can have it.
Son: googles “google wave invites” and finds “www.invitegooglewave.com” ‘Hey daddy look!’
Father: Maybe they would be so kind as to send one along to Volons@gmail.com because it seems they are actually giving them out unlike other sites.
Son: I really hope so!
