Hrrrm, it looks like maybe the GMail guys are wanting to increase the load-testing on GMail. After getting maybe one invite a month for the last couple of months, all of a sudden I’ve got five invites to give away. And a cursory scan of the blogosphere shows I’m not alone.
I wonder if there’s a new feature release coming up? Or if there is some truth in the invite-to-IPO-hype conspiracy theory doing the rounds (stop the invites during pre-IPO so the hype over GMail is kept up for a little bit longer)?
