Get a Google+ invite here: join Plus project circle


Want an invite to this week's hottest social network? I can send a Google+ invitation to your inbox, if you ask nicely. Eschew the morons, idiots, and scammers --- follow Richi's rules. Here are your instructions; observe them carefully. Read on for an invitation to join the [cough] "elite" [cough] circle of Google Plus users...

The instructions have changed a little, thanks to the efforts of some stupid blog spammers. Please read carefully. 

In order to secure your Google+ invite, simply do both these things: First, share the love with your friends -- click the Tweet or Facebook Share boxes to the left to tell them about it (if you can't see the sharing boxes, just tweet this page or share this page on Facebook). Second, email me at and include your Twitter or Facebook username in the text. Feel free to also say hi!  

Important: I'm able to send a limited number of invitations each day, so hurry: it's first come, first served.

Those unlucky not to be able to be invited today will be invited the next day, so you won't lose out. I'll make reasonable efforts to invite people in order. Your details will be protected per the standard Computerworld privacy policy. Not responsible for non-receipt of email. Void where prohibited. Your mileage may vary. Contains nuts.  

Still here? What are you waiting for? Get clicking, and don't forget to email me, or I won't be able to invite you.
