Give Out and Receive Your Google Wave Invitations Here

Google just started handing out Wave invites, and they're planning to dish out more all day. The door is open to 100,000 new users; if you're one of the lucky ones, you can share the love (and your invites) here.

They are sending out those invitations by hand (that is, it's not an automated push to every single user), so it will probably take some time.

If you were lucky enough to get an invite, you'll also score eight invitations of your own that you can hand out to your friends and colleagues. If you're interested in sharing the love with your fellow Technophilia readers post a comment and let others know you've got an invitation to share.

Good luck, Everybody!
