A Gift For Me

I don't know why I forgot to ask for this earlier...

If anyone has a Gmail invite (or two) they would like to send me, I'd be most appreciative. The e-mail address in at the top of the left sidebar.

I'm planning on moving my comment notification e-mail traffic to Gmail. Of course I have to have an account to pursue that strategy.

I must admit this is a bizarre strategy on the part of Google. Either they want this to be a mass program or they don't. What's with this "application" and "invitation" crap?

I tried the begging approach and it really didn't work. A couple people promised, but then Google took the invite tool off Gmail and Blogger. Supposedly they were thwarting the eBay-ification of the accounts.

It's called teasing James. How do you create buzz about another in a long, long line of free email services?

You tease people by saying they can't have it. They'll knock down your door.

POP3:

why do you want a email account from Google?
- for starters, it is beta, so the project might be cancelled, data destroyed, etc. at any time.
- Google has shown (like M$) to be ineffective at anything outside their core business (search engine and ads that use that search engine). Froogle sucks. Orkut is okay, but not very exciting. Google local is okay, but does not outperform a "phonebook" or anywho etc etc etc.
- they search your email for key words to serve you ads. this may change if it is officially released, but i would be hesitant about emailing anyone with a gmail account if i had something important or confidential to say.

I just found you and I am not sure what you're saying and why, but I'm loving the intelligent conversation and wit. Thanks!
