Did you get your Pownce invite?

If you are an avid social networker then you are either enjoying your new favorite site, or you are chomping at the bit waiting for your own Pownce invite! I registered my e-mail address the moment I heard the new service was taking names, and Friday I was rewarded with an invite. Pownce has been the talk of the blogosphere and podosphere for some time now, and I'm finally in! The site is the latest from creator Kevin Rose and friends Leah Culver, and Daniel Burka (from Charlottetown, where I now reside). Pownce is reminiscent of Twitter except you can also trade links, files, and publish events either privately to friends or publicly.
