You'd think I was giving out free money or something.
They're not pre-IPO shares, just gmail invites.
It's funny. Almost nobody asked me for an account until I mentioned it on a mailing list earlier today. Now I've probably sent out 20 invites in 10 minutes.
A few smart cookies assumed I had some invites stashed away when I first talked of spamming my gmail account (thanks for all the "spam", btw). I purposely didn't mention invites because I wanted to see how long they'd last if I didn't.
The answer: way, way longer than expected.
Now I guess I need to be selective or something. If I was greedy, I'd just run a dutch auction on eBay or something. But I won't. Direct PayPal is so much easier!
Unless I'm not.
I figure that this post will pretty much clear out what remains of my invite quota.
