They’re selling on eBay for as much as 60 to 100 bucks. They’ve inspired a swap site dedicated solely to them. They’re fast. They’re in demand. And they’re not yet available to the general public.

Yes, I’m talking about the coveted Gmail beta accounts.

I got mine tonight (directly from Google).

Some people seem to have the ability to invite others to join; I do not. Regardless, I’m glad I got my gabeanderson at gmail account. After all, I do tend to have the market on the gabeanderson real estate on the Web (all you other Gabes are too slow on the draw, I guess) — the dot com, the Yahoo account, the Fastmail account, etc. So if nothing else, I now have rights to that name on the hottest new Web service.

Oh yes, and I suppose I’ll also get to play around with a fun, much-hyped, powerful new email tool. So feel free to drop me a line in that account (see above paragraph if you missed the address — it shouldn’t be that hard to figure out).

    Sorry, Gabe, I apparently could’ve invited you earlier…I just realized I have a couple of invites with my account. And, wow, I can swap ’em for things like a disco ball or “a pic of me doing whatever u want”.

    I wasn’t using gmail because they weren’t supporting Safari when I signed up, but it now seems that they are, so maybe I’ll make the switch.
