Gmail for the Troops

Wil Wheaton posts about giving your Gmail invites to overseas troops, who are stuck with lesser (slower and smaller space) free web mail accounts. Since disk space is especially the key to being able to send pictures and videos both ways, it’s a huge win to get able to give them 1GB of free drive space.

Sounds good to me. I have 1 left to give away, and when I get more, I’ll go looking for troops to give them to.

Hell, Google should learn about this and capitalize it into excellent free publicity: all overseas troops get free accounts. They’d be sure to get lots of free press as a result. Man, they’re missing something golden here.

Update: There’s a web site now. If you want to give away Gmail invites for the troops, there’s a message board to post to.
