Early Access to Google Products

UPDATE: After this post several readers sent me invites. I now have an account. Thanks!

Last year I was lucky enough to get early access to Google Voice (formerly Grand Central). How? Well I just logged in to blogger, google's blogging software, and there was an invitation just waiting for me.

This is a great marketing strategy for Google. Create a new service and provide early access to bloggers since they are very likely to write about said service and build buzz around it.

I haven't been writing much lately but I really want a Google Wave account. I logged in to blogger today for the sole purpose of finding a Wave invite. Unfortunately nothing. Come on Google, let me try Wave!
