Also Retweet this update “RT @Shahabonline VirginTech is giving away 5 Google Wave Invites” . Make sure you include your tweet link in your comment along with the answers to the above two questions. We will select the best five answers (comments) and the wave invites will be sent to their authors.

UPDATE [Winner Announcement]: It was really hard for me to choose the best comments in this contest. Though most of the comments were good but only few guys commented in the proper format. Also i noticed that few (2-3) commentators have already got an invite from somewhere, so keeping all these points in mind I have compiled the list of the five best comment authors. Their names are:

1: Cdressler
2: Danny davis
3: Grzechu
4: Florian Markl
5: Flin

Congratulations guys! I have just sent you the invites on your emails. You will get them soon 🙂

Note: We can’t guarantee you, but we may get few more invites in the near future, so we will distribute them to all the remaining comment authors on this post. In case we get only limited wave invites the first three invites will be sent to these names.

1: Rahil

2: Ravi

3: Diego

By the way thank you all for participating, and stay tuned to VirginTech for more updates.

UPDATE 2: We got four more invites and we have sent them to following people.

1: Ravi
2: Diego
3: jayakhrishnan

Looking for a Google Wave invite and am a subscriber to the website. I do a lot of rapid brainstorming/ideation type work for my clients (digital media, online website creation and social media marketing) and it would be super helpful to have a tool like this to rapidly ideate through early conceptual work.


3 Diego November 12, 2009 at 11:26 am

Im a server admin, just as pavan, i try to keep up with new tech. It would be very helpful to have wave to be able to colaborate with more people.

Im not subscribed but ill give it a look to see whats up.

Guys please make sure you post your tweet link in your comments.
I’ve already told you to Retweet the update “RT @Shahabonline VirginTech is giving away 5 Google Wave Invites” and post the link of this tweet in your comments along with the answers to the two questions.

I can see few of you guys (like @cDressler and others) have retweeted but not posted the link, so please post the tweet link.

Hi, my name is Danny Davis; I’ve subscribed via e-mail and tweeted your request. You can view my tweets at

I am a student at the University of Mississippi and group projects are always a clusterf*ck for me. Whenever a group project needs to be done the hardest part is not the project itself but the communication difficulties that slow us down. Often times I become the single point of failure within our group when I forward everyone’s responses to everyone else; hoping everyone will get up to speed.

Often times however piecing together broken pieces of a conversation from 4 other people is extremely difficult and eventually leads to “Nevermind everyone I’ll finish the project myself”

If I were ever to get a Google Wave account I will wave with everyone I know and managing tasks will be so much easier. I am actively involved on campus in many community service clubs and Google Wave would make us alot more efficient at achieving our goals in the community. Ultimately not only would a Google Wave account help the GPA of an aspiring college student but also help my community as well.

1) I use many different applications, systems, or just ways to communicate with friends or gather news from all over the world. GTalk, FB, Jabber, Skype, Twitter, RSS, emails (of course), Spotify (many many years ago Audiogalaxy, Pandora for a while). With Picasa i share photos with friends. Then of course i go to Twitter and FB to share link to the place, etc.
With Google Wave i see many possibilities to make my life easier. To get many things in one place and communicate with less effort – but not less information 🙂 What exactly are those possibilities and how it all can be done, how it runs – that i look forward to when will have the invite 🙂

2) Yes, via Google Reader


8 Tyler Ruppert November 12, 2009 at 7:23 pm

I am a web developer for a chain of newspapers and would like to use Google Wave for both collaboration in the workplace and as an addition to our sites.

I am subscribed to this blogvia Google Reader. I like how it talks quite a bit about Google and Facebook as a sort of How-to guide because we use both of these for our sites.

18 Richard November 15, 2009 at 12:53 am

I am not a subscriber but I am willing to sign up. However, I would like to get an invite because as a techie, it is important to be updated with new technologies. Gmail was an excellent and clean design, I am sure that Google Wave will be another great product from Google.



19 Grzechu November 17, 2009 at 5:35 am

Thank you very much, Im honored 🙂

And i found your info: “Please do keep one thing in mind that wave invitations are not sent immediately, it may take hours or even days.”

So i wait patiently.

Thank you again and cheers!


20 Shahab November 17, 2009 at 9:43 am

Hey Grzechu, Your Welcome!

You wouldn’t have to wait too much because these days Google is sending out invites more quickly!
So i hope you will get it soon!


21 Grzechu November 20, 2009 at 4:10 am

Well… sorry to say, but i did not get anything about Wave 🙁


22 Shahab November 20, 2009 at 6:06 am

Well Grzechu i have sent the invitations to all the five guys including you on 17th nov, so that’s done from my side. So please be patient. This delay is on part of google wave itself it has nothing to do with me.

Anyway just for your information let me tell you that for my wave invite i waited for around 2 weeks. So its a time taking process (don’t know why),
please be patient!


23 Grzechu November 20, 2009 at 12:04 pm

I intended to be patient after your reply, but… here it is 🙂 Thanks 🙂


24 Shahab November 20, 2009 at 12:51 pm

@Grzechu, You’re welcome 🙂


25 Rahil Ahmad November 21, 2009 at 10:35 am

Hello Shahab!

Thanks for including my name in the next batch of invites!
I was very optimistic about getting an invite from you..after hunting for soooo long for wave invites. Although i understand that u had just limited invitations to give its absolutely fine!! Cant wait for the next batch of invitations 🙂


26 Shahab November 21, 2009 at 12:07 pm

Hey Rahil, Thanks for being so patient with me.
I really wish i could give invites to all of my readers but unfortunately i had very limited invites.

BTW…I hope i get few invites soon to distribute among you guys.
