Gmail @ 11:45 pm

Wow.

I got another round of invites. More than I will ever conceivably
need. If you have a FRIEND who would like a gmail account, I will
seriously consider hooking them up. To generalize the old rule, if I
don't know you well online, I won't give you an account. If I don't
know you at least passingly in person, I won't give your friends
accounts. Unless you are named Sylvia, in which case the fact that I
don't know you in person is a cruel consequence of geography alone.
(And for that matter, I miss our late night conversations, lady.)

I realize there are people already in the 'queue' here, but if I
haven't already given you an account, send me a new EMAIL or just
RESPOND with the following in the body (feel free to respond like a
survey--I get lj mail to my gmail account, now, so it's a convenient
way to get your info where I need it).

First Name:
Last Name:
Current Email Address:

(And if I don't already know the person in question) Who are they and
why should I give this stranger an account?

If you just see this and would like an account, you can make a case
for why I should make an exception for you personally. I'll give you
serious consideration. I mean I have a LOT of invites at this
point...

Holy Shit! You're not only married, you're PREGNANT, too! Congratulations, Mel. =) And christ, in Paris, no less. Well, I retract my question about the BA. Probably not. =) Let me know if Stephan would like an account as well, and I'll be happy to oblige. (I'd offer for your not-yet, but I imagine typing's more of a third trimester sort of skill...)

Heh heh, you're cute. Stephane doesn't spend much time on the computer (like 30 minutes a month) so I wouldn't bother with him. But you're very sweet and I'm excited to use it!

Hey John,

I think it would be great to have an account. :)

OK, fine. I'll be a clown, since I am now blessed with gmail. But I'm not wearing a goddamned nose.

Hey, Clown...uh...Richard...whatever. Some friends of mine are planning this party, and I told them you'd wear this funny nose and dance like a monkey with a banana clenched in your buttcheeks. I hope that's cool?

No you don't. Why do you persist in this petty fiction? Jesus, man, nobody even thinks you have any dignity. Who the fuck are you trying to fool, here? It's pathetic!

A Plea

(Link)
Hey,
So in the LJ office and on the support irc channel gmail came up. Decided to bring it up with the two other Marks in the office, one of which being Ferrell. The other Mark and I were in awe when he said he had a friend who could get him one but then he didn't get one. So we decided that it couldn't hurt to ask you and I mean when is dropping Ferrell's name not a good thing? ;) So if you want to hook a few of us LJ crew up, well I know I'd be appreciative.

Thanks,
David Recordon

Ferrell said I should come over here and plead my case for an invite to gmail. So, here I go:

First Name: Mark
Last Name: Smith
Current Email Address: marksmith@livejournal.com

Uh... I think Google rocks, and Gmail will rock too. LiveJournal rocks, and I work for LiveJournal, and what could be better than having a Gmail address so I can share love of LiveJournal with the world?

I'd offer you an inside line to LJ, but you know Brad and Ferrell, so you've already got that. I'd offer to have your babies, but I'm a guy, and I'm not sure how well my girlfriend would like that. I'd offer to buy you a beer, but you're in California (although if you ever come back up here, beer's on me!).

Hell, there's about nothing I can offer you, but hey, is there any way I could get an invite? I'd sure love one! :)

Danke, danke.

For others reading through this and hoping for an invite, note that there is no requirement for quid pro quo. You just have to convince me that you're not some freak who I'll later regret giving access to the system. Any other LJ staff are more than welcome to hit me up.

Mark Smith told me that you "have invites and are 'all about hookin up the LJ people'" -- so could I perhaps get an invite?

Heh, sorry for all the traffic from the LJ staff, they started a discussion on gmail yesterday and I mentioned that you'd just posted this ;)

I'm definately interested in giving this a shot myself too:

I'm a friend of Sylvia's, and I've been on the waiting list for quite some time. I don't care about my info being used or whatnot, and I'm really interested to see what Google does with the service.

Plus, if I have a gmail account... doesn't that make me a g? (Is that even still slang?)

John, dearest! I'm apparently the slowest of your friends to respond, but is it still possible for me to nab a gmail account? You can email me at chyee @ juno.com.

Hope everything in your world is rockin' and rollin'. :)

Hey, John --

I apologize for not leaving you all the necessary info on the previous LJ comment... I totally blanked on that. My last name is Cheung. Would it take too much to get that corrected?

Thanks a million, John!

non-issue. You can change that stuff inside your account. Just create it with the misspelling and edit it later.

Best,

-John

I must be a complete dunce because I never got around to signing up for my account. Now I'm left with an expired invitation. Would it trouble you too much if I requested for another invite? (I truly apologize if this causes you any inconvenience!) Truly the best you are, John. :)

You dont know me, and I was just randomly browsing LJ...and I know you said its only for your friends, but if you have any extras or anything I figured it didn't hurt to ask. Gmail sounds pretty nifty.
