Status of the bet :: Week 2

Some observations for Week 2.

  • Apparently Google Wave users don’t use Twitter to talk about Google Wave. That’s understandable given the fact that Google Wave talks and tweets as much as Twitter does.
  • Don’t really know if anybodies invites have been activated. On Twitter I’ve seen some messages come by which indicate they might not.
  • The spam on Twitter about Google Waves is annoying to say the least.
  • And of course there’s a plethora of Google Wave scams. And like lemmings people fall for it: http://www.tech65.org/2009/10/11/psa-beware-of-google-wave-scam-sites/

Update:

Status as of this moment: 100.000 initial invites + 800.000 potential second round invites + unknown number of people who Google ‘forgot’ to invite.
