Google Wave Contacts Wanted

waveHaving won the Phandroid competition giving away an invite for the Google Wave preview, I now have a Google Wave account! The problem is I can’t try this out without any contacts, and I can’t add any contacts because it won’t let me invite anyone.

I thought I would put this out there as there must be other people in similar situations. If you have an account, but no-one to “wave” with, feel free to add me and we can try it out. You could also add your details to the comments to invite others to contact you too.

My Google Wave address is (I think) [deleted – see below] (is there such thing as a waveto: url?). Feel free to say hi!

Please note I am not offering invites (yet). I haven’t been given any, and I already have people queuing up for them!

[Update 2009-11-03]: I’ve had a great response to this post, and don’t have time to converse with all the new contacts I’ve made! Instead I’ll publish the wave address of anyone who would like me to. Just leave a comment.

  1. A word of caution
    Rob, thanks for the post. I just received my invite and found your site because I too was looking for some wave contacts. I appreciate what you have done here and have added those that have posted. However, I would like to suggest to you, those who have already responded and those who will visit in the future that your wave/email address be obfuscated. A computer doesn’t know that we’re all at google (and gmail), but we all know it, so just listing the user with the domain removed may be adequate. If anyone wants to add me, I’m josh.orr at the requisite domain.

  2. Good point Josh, although at the moment I don’t know of any wave spambots, and as far as I know the addresses don’t work as email addresses anyway. I have removed the domains from the links in the post. If anyonw wants I can also remove them from their comments.

    It’s also worth mentioning that you shouldn’t assume a Wave username will work there’s also for UK users (de to a copyright issue), and mine isn’t a Google Mail address at all.

  3. hey sorry, i noticed that earlier post and id appreciate it if you removed the domain from my post
    thats a good idea
    didnt even think of that

  4. Hi Owen

    I don’t mind, but I’m not sure whether everyone on the list would want it. Maybe send each one a wave asking them? Or you could just link to this post.


  5. I was looking at your website and noticed it appears the word “Somone” is spelled wrong. I had similar problems on my site until someone mentioned it to me and I also now use software from to keep my site error free.
