Warning: This blog entry was written two or more years ago. Therefore, it may contain broken links, out-dated or misleading content, or information that is just plain wrong. Please read on with caution.

I got my Gmail account from some generous people who were nice enough to send me an invite, so I've decided to pay it forward. I've got more invites than I do people to send them out to, so if you're interested in trying out Google's new email service, leave a comment for this entry and I'll send one your way. Be sure to include your email address (it won't be displayed on the site, so no need to worry about filthy, no good spammers) so I know where to send the invitation. The only thing I ask from you is that you too "pay it forward."

I'm just wating for more invites to give out... has anyone figured out the formula behind when and how many you get?


Josh on July 21, 2004 at 10:23 PM:

That is too nice of you!

If you've still got some left, I sure would love to have one.

Clive on July 23, 2004 at 2:37 AM:

Wow, thats fantastic, I'd like a gmail invite if you have any left. Thanks


TWilliam on July 25, 2004 at 9:12 PM:

Wow... ever since I heard about G-mail I've wondered how one could become one of the 'betas'. If you've got any left I'd love to give it a try.

I love the 'pay-it-forward' idea too... I suspect the world would be a much better place if more were to put it into practice... :-)

Thanks again, and if it's too late, thanks anyway for the generous offer.

Thanks a lot.


Alex on March 10, 2006 at 4:19 AM:

Congratulatios! You do a very good job!!!
I really don't understand why a famous global company like Google doesn't provide codes to mobiles to the majority of the coutries of the world...
Have you noticed the slim list of countries where it is possible? Take a closer look at: Only 10 countries!!! Australia, Indonesia, Malasia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey and United States! No one country in Europe, Latin America, Africa, most Middle East countries, not even Japan nor India!!
I wonder what kind of strategy they are following...
So please send me an Gmail invitation so I can also help my friends and people around me in Europe!
Thanks a lot!


Phil on March 14, 2006 at 1:35 PM:

Elie Milgrom on March 19, 2006 at 2:48 AM:
