IT digest discusses the present and future of google.
Here's my idea for another feature .. which I'll bet wouldn't be too hard to implement:
"publish this" in gmail would be a way to publish an e-mail to a weblog. It would need to support a publishing API so we're not all locked in to blogger.
oh .. I've got a few gmail invites .. if you want one, post a comment here.
I'll get back to medicine soon.
