Gmail invite...anyone?

Back on April 1, when Google announced Gmail, there was a lot of speculation (including speculation from me) that it was a hoax. Nobody, after all, would give away 1GB of disk space, would they?

Of course, we all know by now that it's not a hoax. It's in an extended beta period right now while they test things out. My friend Chunk gave me an invite, and I've had a Gmail account for a few weeks now. I don't actually use it, but I have it.

Now, you can too! I have a bunch of invites, five or so (I've already used one). If you want to be one of the millions of people with an exclusive Gmail account, let me know and I'll hook you up. Here's some more information if you're not sure whether you'd actually use Gmail.

  • I dunno, is it? What have you heard? I think I'm going to use my gmail account as a spamcatcher more than anything else.

  • (Josh) Isn't the plant that they're going to mine your ingoing and outgoing emails to see what you dig and then market you up the wazoo?

  • Plan, rather.
