Joost is the cool, new internet TV project that has been in the tech news lately. I've been participating in the beta for a month or so now. Yesterday Joost gave all existing beta accounts the ability to "invite" new users. If you want to get your hands on this very polished next step in online entertainment, leave a comment on this thread with your email address and I'll "invite" you. Joost allows only one invite per address, so if you want to get another for a friend, you've got to leave their email address as well. Fun stuff!
Important Update! I've just processed the first appx. 50 invites. It was more time consuming than I had anticipated. I will continue to send invites in batches of appx. 50 over the course of the next couple of days. I will try to get to everyone. Understand, however, that as Joost is still in beta, the process isn't perfect. There have been a couple of addresses that Joost bounced back to me... A couple of times where it looked like the invite didn't get sent but it actually did. Be patient - your invite will eventually arrive. Thanks!
P.S. If you want to help offset my time for doing this - or you wish to jump to the head of the queue, my PayPal address is firstname.lastname@example.org
P.P.S. I didn't set out to do this intending to ask for PayPal tips, but as I am sending my 80th invitation after working at this all morning so far - with no end in sight, I'm not embarrassed to suggest it. hehe
P.P.P.S. 150+ invites sent so far! Keep 'em coming!
P.P.P.P.S. We've broken 200 invites sent!
P.P.P.P.P.S. Would you believe 400+ invites sent to Neatorama readers so far today?
P.P.P.P.P.P.S. I just passed 500 invites sent and I'm going to call it a day. I still have plenty of invites left - I'll resume sending them in the morning! Thank you everyone - especially the generous few who tossed a few coins in my direction via PayPal.
