Google Wave invites: The touts come out

Having been around early enough in the life of Gmail to be one of the invited early adopters, I remember the frenzy around the new and game-changing Google service. ("Unlimited storage on webmail? No way!" we cried.)

We haven't seen anything quite like it since then - until today. Google Wave went into early testing this morning, with 100,000 accounts created for the lucky few developers and Google App customers who made the list.

One Google Wave invite has, according to Mashable, been sold on eBay for $157. eBay in the UK is starting to fill up too. So are you going to part with your hard-earned cash to be one of the early ones?

(Me neither.)
