Google Wave?

Does anyone have a spare invite to Google Wave they'd be willing to share?  I'm very curious about this program, and I'd be especially grateful for the invite!

I too am dying for an invite. Do people have a sense of how widespread the invites are right about now?

I've seen a few professors (not from my university) on Facebook mention that they've received invites, so maybe we're getting closer.  Fingers crossed...

I just heard about this yesterday for the first time (at the HASTAC webinar for DML winners on social networking: http://www.hastac.org/blogs/cathy-davidson/what-are-your-intentions-why-...) and would love to know more. What is it? Why use it? Please share...
