I requested an invite a week ago mainly because I was curious about how well Google would implement a web editing and hosting service for non computer geeks. The executive summary: they did a good job and I have recommended to all of my non-technical friends to request an invite.

I already have my own web sites, but to try out their service I just wrote up a little rant on: My take on Spirituality and Responsibility

Fun stuff - not as fun as something like Flickr, but a great site to recommend to non geek friends and family.
