Not sure if anyone is remotely interested in Google's new social network thingy, but I can throw an invite to anyone who wants one.

Providing invites are still open when you ask, obviously.

Just drop your email here or PM me it or something if you're private like that. It's pretty cool.

It's a bit dull at the moment, but sure it'll pick up: http://gplus.to/davehughes

As I bet you've noticed, we are facing pretty incredible demand for Google+ invites.

As Engineering Director of Google+, I wanted to take a moment to explain why we're growing the system slowly. First, we want to make sure our infrastructure scales so the service remains fast and reliable. Second, we want to ensure that bugs are fixed while there are still a relatively few people in the field trial.

Things are going well with the systems right now so we feel comfortable enough to open up invites for a brief period. Our goal is to double the user base in the field trial. (Sorry, we're not giving details about how many folks are in the field trial yet).

So, in a few minutes, we'll open up invites again.

We continue to throttle invites, so please don't mass invite folks as it won't work. If you invite a handful of your most important friends and family you're much more likely to get these folks into our system.

Thanks again for providing so much wonderful feedback!

Yeah, it's as bit dull as there's only a handful of people playing with it.

The invites have closed again but you can still get in if you keep refreshing the page once in a while, that's how I got in. It's just a matter of luck, really. I've shared a post with you so it shows up in your inbox.

How terribly crude. I am shocked and appalled.

I have not received an email. Am I just being impatient?

Might be worth checking your spam, and possible yes you are.

It's not in my junk folder so I'm guessing it's the latter.

Woe.

I think I've mostly figured it out but that was confusing for a while. Is the chat function any good, seeing as the facebook one is a bit shit now?
