I now have 50 invites for GMail. Does this mean that it is coming out of BETA? If so it augers well for the likes of Flickr, Kinja and all the other semi-permanent BETA web apps that are so popular.

But is this what it means? On one hand it’s kinda obvious. They want to spread the word and get as many people as possible to sign up. Simple enough, right?

I’m not sure though, it seems awfully cack handed of Google to use that kind of approach when they are more than capable of launching this in a blaze of publicity themselves, why rely on a grass roots approach?

So what are they up to? Maybe they are launching a new raft of features, upping the limit to 2GB??

Or am I over thinking this to try and distract my brain from XML schemas and UML notation…

Yeah OK, they’re gonna finish the BETA. I know. Hey, it’s been a LONG day.

Not yet got around to doing that book meme that is going round – been avoiding it all week until I’ve got something better than UML diagrams, or Security Model architectures as the nearest book.

I will mention a gem spotted in one of the papers today – it was an article about a hotel that had placed braille everywhere to ensure it’s blind patrons could navigate their way round the hotel, it extended to small braille stickers in the rooms denoting which plug was for what appliance etc etc – we particularly liked the fact that the lift not only had braille on the buttons but a small guide as to what was on each floor, including the ‘panoramic view’ available from the roof terrace.
