Joost invites

If you know someone using Joost, then you have a way of getting an invite. Now its open for everyone that knows someone that has a Joost account. OK, I see I have to update: I will give you a Joost invite, but its not free for all anymore. The Joost invitation system is a royal pain in the ass, so the effort I put in to give you an invite has to be countered by an effort by you to do something for me. Alas: You scratch my back, […]

Joost in public beta

Joost invites are VERY popular these days. If you don’t know what Joost is – let me tell you. Its the new “product” of the creators of Skype and Kazaa. Its a streaming peer-to-peer TV-network. You should check out Joost!Hopefully I will be able to give away some invites soon too, so stay tuned!

Google Mail cranking up the invites

Google Mail changed their interface for invitations some time ago, and now its apparent why: Most, if not every, Google Mail user now has 50 invites to give away! The question now is if this is a prelude to opening Google Mail up for anyone to register. It might be that Google will continue only allowing new users by invite, there are some obvious advantages to being able to control just how many new users enter the system, and the trail back to who invited them. The trail could possibly

RSS 1.0 Blog Reader and web services

Jeffrey Hill of Flash-db.com is busy making cool Flash front-ends for web services. One of them are the RSS 1.0 Blog Reader I’ll share his very interesting e-mail with you all: it does add a new twist to other RSS news readers as it’s based off of a web service. The service (remotely hosted) returns an array – so there’s no need to parse any XML in Flash.
