Google Mapplets place in the world

I think we may be able to do some really cool things with this. They make for a way to create protected space to create a front-end for querying a whole db, they display results. Gotta play with it to find it's potential. The explanation for how it works was brilliant. Complex enough to do something hard, yet simple enough to make it easy enough to use. It's hard to make something so complex, so simple. That's pretty, very pretty.

Also, nice to see them pushing users to create and use KML and GeoRSS. I'm glad we've already started down that road. Now we'll need to find a good way to store or archive them.
