A couple weeks back, some of us on the Gmail team were talking about how simple it's become to connect with people around the world through email. And we got to thinking: what if email was delivered via a Rube Goldberg machine, but instead of gears and levers, people on everything from bicycles to submarines brought messages from one place to another? So we had a little fun with a collaborative video depicting just that (well, not the submarines).

Now it's time to let everyone in on the action. Learn more at our new Gmail Blog, or go directly to http://mail.google.com/mvideo where you'll find directions on how to submit your clip.
