More Gmail

Something I only noticed yesterday, and am reminded of by this C|Net article, Gmail no longer provides only 6 invitations at a time, but 50.

There was some hubbub about the safety of what you store there. I consider it another virtual desk surface, browser-accessible, full-text-searchable, and backed up by someone else. As Scott McNealy once said before Sept. 11 and before everybody recognized Identity Management as a huge market:

You have no privacy. Get over it.

What you do have is anonymity. Nobody cares about you like you care about yourself. Not even your mother or John Negroponte.

Let me know if you want 1 GB on their server.
