Gmail blog

Thanks to Stephen Downes for this:

It seems that someone has turned his gmail account
into blog
authoring software

There followed a discussion on Slashdot that caused such a commotion that the gmail blog was turned off, but the author plans to reinstate it once the fuss has died down.

There's a lot of interest related to Google's gmail accounts because of the space they provide for free (1GB), the organisational aspects, search facilities, and akso the anti-spam element. I have been trying out gmail and I am very impressed with it. Unfortunately, it's in a beta (testing) phase and is open to new members by invitation only. However, I have lots of invitations, so if anyone wants one, just leave a comment on this post and I'll send you an invite.


  1. Dear Stephen Downes,

    I would like to have a gmail account to use for a web log with my ESL science class at Roosevelt H.S. in Washington, D.C.

    Would you please send me an invitation for a gmail account? (

    Many thanks,

  3. I've only recently started blog experiments (intended to be similarly focussed on EFL topics . . . . yours just discovered today!)

    A _Gmail invitation_ would be very much appreciated indeed.
