I've been on the Venice Project beta for a while now and my invite level has always been stuck at zero. I don't think they're allowing beta testers to invite people yet. Granted, I haven't dl'ed the latest client with the Joost branding yet, but I doubt its changed. This is just a PSA for anyone attempting to buy their way into Joost : the invite is probably bogus.
I signed up for the Venice Project awhile ago and have yet to get in. It sounds promising, although I hear the content is a bit on the sparse side. I really hope it uses the same protocols as bittorrent. Because if the current Net Neutrality laws pass ISP's can still do traffic and packet shaping. However if they cant distinguish between Joost and other Bittorrent's they will probably have to stop, because I suspect Joost will become large enough to fight ISP's that break any potential Net Neutrality law.
I don't know how long the wait is now, but I signed up for their waiting list very late (about three weeks ago) and received an automated invitation a day or two ago through their system. This seems to indicate they are opening the beta to a larger audience. So for those wanting an account, sign up for their waiting list if you haven't already.
I add my name to the list of people looking for invites. If I could get one, I'll make sure to give out invites at HardOCP when I get invites of my own to send out. So, um, a vote for me is a vote for exponential growth
The purpose of this forum is for people to share hot deals that they find with others. It is not a personal shopper. It is not for you to come here and ask for a good deal and make others do the legwork for you. Therefore we ask that you stop posting request threads. All such threads will be locked from this point forward.
