I've also read that Google has decided to open up more invitations and have given each current gmail member 3 more invitations. If true, that's good news for me and makes my odds of getting one better.

The giving tree
While continuing my search for gmail, I found a new site called The Giving Tree. It's a site where people who want gmail can put their name on the list. People who are current gmail users can see your name on the list and send you your invite. The stipulation is that once you're a registered member and get invites of your own to pass out, you'll come back to The Giving Tree to pass them out. Thus, everybody wins. I put my name on the list and was told there are 153 people ahead of me. Not too bad actually. I've been waiting weeks already, what's a few more days or so?
