I Can Watch TV On My Computer

For the past couple of months, as a beta tester for Joost (Note 1), formerly the Venice Project, I have been tossing my 5 invitations available to me into the pool with Tony Hung of Deep Jive Interests who had been randomly selecting email addresses out of his comments. For May, they practically have given everybody 999 new invites, so it’s pretty much unlimited now. Well, Cody Dean has pretty much taken care of all of Tony’s reader’s request 🙂 so I thought I would just put it out here for anybody that is interested.

Note 1: By “beta tester” .. I mean that I just signed up quite early when it was a closed site and was one of the first people who actually HAD invites available to give away – when it was The Venice Project Beta Test (October 5, 2006). However, I didn’t really test it that much nor provide any meaningful contribution to the development of the software or site or anything – so, if you don’t like it .. don’t blame the messenger!

So .. who Wants a Joost Invite? Leave Your Name and Email in These Comments

I think that heading is pretty obvious. I need your FIRST NAME and LAST NAME and valid Email Address (you can enter it as .. blahblah (at) blahblahblah (dot) com .. if worried about scrapers) and I will automatically invite you, at my own leisure, but I will invite you! I mean .. I’ve got 999 invitations that I can send out .. you should try it! It’s kind of neat. I think it will be like YouTube some day .. so popular that it can ONLY GET BETTER and be the next generation of TV for us people who sit in front of a computer set most of the days. I mean .. why have a 2nd TV monitor in our Home Office? We can have a TV as a Monitor for our computer! Muhahahahah! “evil grin* … First ze TV programming and ze internet .. zen ze vorld!

update: I know your email already when you comment, only if you want a DIFFERENT email associated with Joost you should provide it below!

Um, ya. Well – here’s some background information on Joost!

* What is Joost?

As described by Joost!

What is Joost?

Joost is a new way of watching TV on the internet. With Joost, you get all the things you love about TV, including a high-quality full-screen picture, hundreds of full-length shows and easy channel-flipping.

As described by Tony Hung

Joost, for the uninitiated, is a new application that is from the guys behind Skype, and previously, Kazaa, and it allows anyone to watch TV from the internet in a fairly seemless, easy-to-use fashion. With web2.0 elements incorporated into it, such as sharing, chat and instant messaging within the client, it makes for a very different TV viewing experience indeed!

David Sanders says:

Anyone kind enough to pass on any available invite?

David .. invite sent!

Leroy - GL says:

Leroy .. invite sent!

Bob Shoulders says:

Hi, Hart,
It’s very kind of you to give out invites! Could I have one, please? Thanks!

Bob .. invite sent!

And, thanks for kind words 🙂

Jaya Aaron says:

Hi there! I would love an invite, please. Thanks a bunch, Hart.

Rick Thompson says:

Being a beta tester is always an interesting way to get the feel of software. Have to keep current on system restores backups, though, just in case any given program goes awry with the registry.

May I have an invite please? Sounds like it’s worth a look see!

blackened says:

hi there! could i have an invite please? 😀

Jaya and Rick … invites sent!


If I’m online and can multi-task, I will try to get the invite out as quickly as possible. Otherwise, I will AT LEAST make sure I get these invites out by the end of the blogging day. I will post messages like I have been doing, to let you know that the invites were sent.

For those of you receiving the invites: Feel free to leave comments here about your experience .. What do you think? Cool? or Not That Cool?

blackened – you didn’t leave your FIRST NAME and LAST NAME … it’s a small thing to ask, but that’s the deal if you want an invite.

Jaya Aaron says:

Wow, that was fast. Thanks so much, Hart! I like that phrase you used, ‘the end of the blogging day’… has a nice ring to it, as if there is nothing to do in a day other than blog. And indeed, that is how some of my more freedom filled days seem. But alas, I write this from work, boo-hoo. Anyway, I do much appreciate the Joost invite, and look forward to checking it out.

Jaya .. that’s funny .. I remember years and years ago we used to have a saying .. ‘If you can’t sleep at work, you should get another job’ .. I guess to go with the flow of these times, I could say .. “If you can’t blog while you work, you should get another job” 🙂

Of course, I work out of my home, and should be always working .. and as you know .. Blogging is hard work!

matt bosarge says:

Hey Hart,
I would love an invite–I live in Mexico City and trying to avoid paying for satellite. Thanks!

matt bosarge says:

Oops, typo in the email address!

Andy .. I just tried to re-send, but received an error because the 2nd email is identical to the 1st email – and according to Joost – “The email you provided is either invalid or already in use .. please check the email address provided” ? .. // Which i guess means that it will probably come eventually …

Is this the correct email? andyw (at) dihee (dot) com ?? I could try another one.

Andy says:

Yes that’s correct email address.
I don’t know what happen, but I received email which is you posted.
Please resend different email address.
