Do you need a Google Wave Invitation?

I have 15 Google Wave Invitations left out of 20. I want to invite some people, not randomly or whoever asks me. So please post a comment on this post and I will select some people from you to invite to have a preview of Google Wave.

I found many people are turning these invitations to money making machine. So people are using this as social money, which perhaps is good. If someone wants to share these invitations to her/his followers then nothing wrong with that. This is similar, even better than to share with your friend. But some people are doing some disgusting stuff. Some people have created websites with many ad banners and asks you to forward some number of people to their website from a unique short link. And they say you will get your invitations like that. I am not sure whether those people accept this trick seriously and post that link on twitter thinking that their followers might click on that link and they might get an invite, getting a invite or not!

There are few people who create too many email ids and send invitations to their own other email ids, so they can multiply the invitations they have and make money from that. The math is simple, if you have an Google wave account, then you will get 20 invitations (I got 8 initially and other 12 today morning). So if you share these with your other email ids, then you will get 400 invitations. You can make these 400 to 160,000 – but this process may take some more days, in by that time Google Wave may open to all. So these people start their bad business with these 400 invitations. Learned little late, not everyone can share invites, only those who got invitations from Google itself can share them.

I found some people asking for invitations on twitter with some brand new twitter account. And the only purpose of the account is to ask other people for Google Wave invites.

I am interested to share these invitations with those people who look like deserving on my eyes. So with the comment say something about you, add a link to your blog, portfolio, website, twitter, identi.ca, facebook, friendsfeed, digg or any other link you like to. So that I can know and understand you better to share a Google Wave invite with you. It may take some time (even more than a day) for your to receive the invitation. As the people at Google say,

Invitations will not be sent immediately. We have a lot of stamps to lick.

You don’t need to be a Geek or technocrat to be selected by me, I have shared these invitations with journalism student, film editor and media director, computer science student and IT professionals. And the next is you!

If you like, you can follow me at twitter. And don’t miss the comic below – The Brads – Social Currency by Brad Colbow
the_bradz_scial_currency

Update
No more invitations left for now. I will let you know if I am getting more again. Thank you all for the requests.

Got some more Google invitations to share. If you need one, please request a demo public preview here. After using this for an hour or more, if you feel like using it for more time with your own account then comment on that post explaining how do you feel about Google wave, how is your experience with the demo public preview, why do want to use Google wave. Also don’t forget to tell about you and put some link to your social media.

Everyone got 8 invitations today. The demo account I created for public use also got 8. So I disabled that for public use. So all old rule for this post is valid to get one. Better ask any of your friend who is already on Google Wave for one. Hope you will get that easily in that way.

    I really like your philosophy on the google wave invites! I provided a link to my twitter so you can see a little bit of what I am about. Your quote, ‘I’m essentially a software developer by profession, an entrepreneur by ambition, and a computer scientist by osmosis.’ , is very fitting for me as well. Nice wording! (and thanks for the invitation opportunity!)

    I can see how people are turning GoogleWave into a money making machine, I can admire their ingenuity however it makes me a bit mad at the same time. Especially when I saw the invites going up on ebay for several hundred dollars. I can’t believe that something that will be free soon enough is such a hot item that people will pay so much money for it. I have been asking for invites on Twitter as I see them (thats how I found your blog actually) but I don’t expect anything to come of it. I do get a giggle out of reading the reactions when people who after begging DON’T get a code…they get so angry its comical.

    Hello,

    I coordinate IT stuff for this very small college. we do not have bricks and mortar yet so our efforts are necessarily distributed. I would like to use Google Wave as a distributed development environment. One of our constraints is band width limits at our end points.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    I understand and respect your approach in relation to sending wave invitations.
    I’ve been asking invites in some forums, blogs and twitter all this week. I definitely do not like begging anybody for anything so trivial and I must say that I almost lost interest in this tool so this is my last request.
    I remember when I received my gmail invite account. This time is the same, I just want to use it to improve my personal communication. In fact, I seriously doubt that wave will really change our way to communicate, but for that very reason I am very curious to try it.
    I would very much appreciate if you can send me and invite.

    Ciao

    Hello: It is awesome that you are willing to hand out invitations like this!

    I am a recent law school graduate and I am starting at a major law firm in Silicon Valley handling matters such as venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, and financing. I am very interested in a Google Wave invite because my field is focused primarily on technology firms, and I’d like to be up to date on new developments.

    Thanks so much if you decide to give me an invitation!

    Hello,

    This is a good way to decide how to share invites. I’m a web developer who is currently working for a project of the UN Foundation called RHRealityCheck.org – a daily publication focusing on reproductive health and justice issues. I built the site using Drupal. I also run TwoHandsWorldshop.com – a fair trade retail business – with my wife out of our home. You can read about us here: http://twohandsworldshop.com/aboutus.php

    Anyway, I’d love to get a look at google wave as I would like to incorporate it into an intranet project I have coming up.

    Thanks for your consideration!

    I’m really interested in using wave. The website is one I made for the bell choir I play with. I’m hope that wave makes certain organizational things easier for those types of things.

    It’s a real drag when you spend hours scheduling rehearsals! :p

    Thanks for giving me this chance to receive an invitation.

    I’m a webdeveloper who is using al lot of Google services. Using analytics, maps, webmaster, blogspot, adsense, adwors and a few others.

    Google Wave will be the next challenge. I’m really eager to learn about it. I have watched the 1 1/2 hour presentation and read a lot other articles about it.

    I’m a first year teacher who is trying to bring technology back into schools. Every school I observed in was completely disconnected from technology refused to use it to connect to the students. I have just introduced my cohorts to Google Docs to help teachers collaborate live with students on projects and papers. I think Wave would be another great step to integrate more technology in the classroom. Thanks

    Hi,

    I am very interested in the idea of google wave and have put some research into it. please visit my blog to see more about me. I would like to use google wave to get involved in some waves that I am aware of, that people are using as a group training sessions. There are also some that I have heard of where people are making waves to help eachother out with technical faults with products. This is also good to network with people as well as learn and help somebody out.

    I think the product looks really good and there is so much that can be done with it. Please consider me for an invite. :)

    Thanks Steve

    Currently I am a web producer in the financial industry and have been looking to expand into other industries. My work requires strategy, project building and real-time communications. I also do several side projects and I am sick of having so many inboxes for so many different projects! I would like to be able to sync my project all together in one place. I would appreciate a Google Wave invite; it would make my life ridiculously easier. Thank you!

    Hi, I’m Christopher Wu and I chat daily with a bunch of friends mostly car guys while we’re spending the time at work stuck behind desks. We’re all IT professionals around the country, and our daily talks are a mix of text / URLs / copypasting images / and sending videos… all of which would be greatly enhanced by use of a Wave. Thank you for offering your invites to people who are human, and please consider my request for one if you have any left. Thanks!

    I would love to test this for our IT staff. I’m curious if this has any tools for helping us on our upcoming large projects.

    If I get invites as soon as I sign up, it could be really useful. If I’ll just be by myself and have no invites to share with our other techs, then not so much.

    Hi Debi… I liked the approach of yours to share the invitations and also the way you have corrected yourself in the post of increasing the invitations… I loved the concept of wave and as they say “How email would if it was invented in this era” I wanted to experience wave…I don’t know whether you are currently having any invitations left or not…But if you have can you send me an invitation…or may also ask somebody you know who can send me an invitation….thanks in advance…

    I am not looking to make money off of Google Wave. I am a software developer and am always trying to keep up with the latest technologies. And Google seems to always be at the top of my list with all of their new additions. I would really like to use Google Wave just to get a head start on what I feel will become a standard way of communicating.

    I like the way you approach Google Wave Invitations.
    I’ve asked many times for invites through the standard Wave form but no reply.
    I would like to improve my personal communication and I’m very curious to try it (like any new real time collaboration product).
    Google products are simply amazing, light and very useful in my opinion.
    Could you send me an invite please ?

      It’s good to know that you had a seminar on this topic.

      Unfortunately, I don’t have any invitations left now. So I can’t share with you. But I would prefer you to send in the next phase, if I will get some more invitations to share. For that you need to submit the papers of your seminar. You can upload to the web and post the link here or send an email to feedback [at] debiprasad.net

    I’m studying law and economics at the University of Salzburg (Austria).
    GWave would be very interesting for me and my fellow students, since there is a lot of teamwork to do for the seminaries. Also it would be interesting for exam preparations.

    Hello. This is kind of an “unconventional” question , but have other visitors asked you how get the menu bar to look like you’ve got it? I also have a blog and am really looking to alter around the theme, however am scared to death to mess with it for fear of the search engines punishing me. I am very new to all of this …so i am just not positive exactly how to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here

      This is not the place to ask for such questions. I don’t know whether it’s a spam comment or a question thread. You could have used contact form.
