Is Sandy wrapping up her on-the-job training?

Messages in the ether suggest that there are more BETA applicants being added to I want Sandy, the Stikkit-powered, anthropomorphic email management tool being built by Portland-based Values of N.

While there are no apparent changes to the I want Sandy site or the Values of N blog, I’m hearing more and more mentions of additional BETA invites in circulation. Interesting, if only for the fact that these are some of the first mentions of Sandy I’ve noticed since June of this year.

Could Sandy be finishing her on-the-job training and getting ready to hit the work-a-day world?

More news as it becomes available.

[Update] I just happened upon some more I want Sandy coverage from Startup Squad.

    Sandy is indeed just about ready for her public debut. She has been working closely with a number of beta testers for a little while now, making sure she’s crossing her T’s and dotting her I’s and is generally as helpful, useful, and pleasant to work with as possible.

    We’ve been bringing in the remaining folk who have been patiently waiting for their invitations as we move toward general availability.

    Thanks so much for the mention and do go ahead and drop us a line at sandy@iwantsandy.com if you’d like to give things a whirl.
