      I just saw a demo of Google's new integration of their gadgets with
      their web-based spreadsheet tool -- very cool! For those interested in
      data visualization, it creates a lot of opportunities.

      "Google on Wednesday unveiled Gadgets for Spreadsheets in Google Docs,
      allowing people to create graphical representations of data in
      spreadsheets and publish them on Web sites.

      For consumers, this means they have a dozen or so new ways to look at
      data in their spreadsheets. Google has put up a gallery of specialty
      gadgets to choose from. They include gadgets to display data on a pie
      chart, map, time chart, funnel chart, Gantt chart, pivot table, and on
      a heat map if it's geographical data. You can even create interactive
      charts like those used by Google Finance and for motion charts.

      These visuals can also be pushed out to appear on an iGoogle home page
      or any other site and they will be dynamically updated as changes are
      made to the spreadsheet."
