Google Wave Invites Giveaway

By  on  
Google Wave

Over the past months I've given away dozens of Google Wave invites via my Twitter feed. Selfless? Yes. Kind? Of course. Generous? Always. So far I've simply given them away but now we're going to play a new game!

The Plot

I'm going to keep this post open and you are going to ask me for a Wave invite via the comments section. As I get new invites, I will simply send them randomly. There is, however, a catch: you must post a link to your favorite photo of Christina Ricci. You scratch my back, I scratch yours.

I currently have 10 available. Good luck!

    I have some invites if anyone wants one, send me an email to deadlow @ gmail dot com

  3. I have another idea .. why not shear our wave accounts here.. and add each others.This way we will have chance to test the wave system in its full power.

    And it’s always good to have someone to talk with it .. when you don’t have anything to do..

    David, I love the way your mind works. This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t get the Christina Ricci thing (I’m more of a Kristen Bell fan) but it’s funny all the same.

    BTW, here’s a photo just kicks (http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2008/startracks/080526/christina_ricci.jpg) – I don’t need a Wave invite.

  12. Guys I don’t want to sound like a caveman but I’ve never heart of Christina Ricci. Anyway she’s cute I like this one: http://www.iceposter.com/thumbs/G53498_b.jpg

  13. I currently have 24 available!!! who want it ?
    give me your email !!

  14. hey guys, please somebody send to billadoid @at@ g(-‘mail’-) .dot com

  17. This has worked out better than I could have ever imagined…

  18. I guess David is now scriping a mootools based Image grinder to grab all the links from this page which point to the, lets be frank, pretty handsome Christina. :P

    Already got wave, so I wouldn’t bother asking an invite. Thanks anyways!

  19. This is the best idea ever. I don’t need the invite, but here’s a wallpaper-sized image for you:

  20. The comments are overlaying outside the div… it’s the image links!
