Tickets for Google’s annual I/O showcase of new products sold out almost immediately after they went on sale, the site throwing up 503s and the furtive queries–”do you know any way to get a badge for I/O?”–started circulating the same day. “The tickets disappeared so fast you’d’ve thought it was for a Justin Bieber concert,” local dev Eddie Nwabuoku wrote on the New York Tech Meetup mailing list. The conference starts tomorrow and the lucky few are excited. And tweeting. Yay.
