Spreading the word
I've just noticed that the number of Gmail invites in my account has doubled, to a rather unwieldy number. I presume this is related to the Google Talk beta (i.e., more Gmail users, more converts to Google Talk). If there's anyone left out there who doesn't have a Gmail/Google Talk account already, ping me and I'll pass one along to you.
UPDATE: Another interesting development comes my way, courtesy of Poynter. According to this article, those with access to a US mobile phone can now register online for a Gmail account activation code, which is distributed via SMS. This would seem to be further evidence of an attempt to accelerate uptake of Gmail, and I presume Google Talk.
