The Latest in Vanity Email Addresses
Written by Bwog Staff
Tipster Stephen Wang informs Bwog that Alma Mater is going to be offering permanent email addresses for its illustrious, tech-savvy alums and seniors. Users will get to choose their own display name (!) and the emails will be able to “enjoy all the features of Google’s Gmail
service while maintaining a Columbia address.” So a lot like what every current student has been doing for four years.
However, our emailing tipster already sends word of a technological slip-up: “You couldn’t sign up on the first day it was available… because it was broken, already.”
UPDATE: Seniors: nab your first name as your display name before someone else gets it first! Ready, set, go.
UPDATE 10:13 PM: Commenter reports that firstname.lastname@example.org. is taken. No word yet on the.butler.marxist, princeton.sucks, et al. Hurry, hurry!
