» App.net invites

Unless you’ve been living in a hole in the ground, you’ve probably heard of this App.net thing that’s so popular with the young people these days. (If you are living in a hole in the ground, you may be a hobbit. Please consult your physician.) As you might have seen from other Internet jerks like me, App.net is doing a staged rollout and the link above has invites to the free tier for the first 100 people to claim them.

If you’re App.net-curious and want to find out more about it before making the huge commitment of signing up for a free account, well, you have issues. But if you have those issues and there’s not getting around them or you’ve scarfed up an invite already and are curious what it’s all about, you can put your ear up to this episode of The New Disruptors where App.net founder Dalton Caldwell talks to Glenn Fleishman about the platform.
