A few days after inviting you to share your Gmail stories, we're already impressed with the results. Among many others, so far we've heard from:

A father who uses Gmail as a digital journal for his son:

A soldier stationed in Iraq:

A record producer who completed an album without ever speaking to the artist in person:

A multi-tasking college student:

We've seen stories that are heartwarming, interesting, funny, and informative. Some people are singing, others are drawing, and some are using special effects. If you don't have a story to share, the responses might inspire you to think of a new way to use Gmail. (I'm already looking forward to starting that digital baby journal in a few years!)

Keep those stories -- and ideas -- coming; we can't wait to see what you'll think of next.
