People, I have google spreadsheet invitations. I'm not sure how limited the initial invitation was, but if you're waiting to get in, I'll invite you. You need to have a gmail account, though.

posted by cortex at 1:48 PM on June 7, 2006


I was lucky enough to get a Google Analytics account before they closed sign-ups. That's why I'm so anxious to get a Spreadsheets account now.

It doesn't work in Safari, though, and I hate having to launch Firefox just to use Spreadsheets so I probably won't be using it as much as I had thought.
