Joost Beta Invitation Giveaway (Updated)

By David Ponce

Hey folks, just wanted to let you all know I’ve been trying Joost Beta (previously known as The Venice Project) for a few days now. The really quick verdict? It looks really nice, and works really well, but it definitely needs more content. Still, it’s kind of cool.

Whatever the case, if you want to give it a try, I’ve got one invite to give away. Just leave a comment on this post, and I’ll randomly pick someone by midnight (Thursday, EST).

Good luck!

[Update: Okay, guys, you got an extension; one more day. And, even better, a second invitation. A friend at Web Savers hosting kindly gave us a spare one, so I’m passing that along. I’ll pick two names from the comments, and you got until Friday midnight (EST). -Ed. ]
