100,000 servers  

Here's a fascinating post from skrenta about what's going on over at Google with their new GMail service (which, by the way, is under attack from privacy groups today). For some reason I find the idea that you could hold the entire surface web in RAM at the same time a little disturbing... maybe I need to write more?

UPDATE: Jason Kottke has some interesting thoughts on what Google's advantages are, and what their long term strategy might look like.
