Owen Winkler writes about AOL's new 2 GB email accounts. These were first deployed back when I worked for them for a term, and Owen's post reminded me of a question I'd asked back then: Does it matter?. To me, not really. I don't keep my email on the web anyway. If I did, it might be a bit heavy on the storage side, but there's no way that my email dating back to 1998 would take up 2 and a half gigs.
