Ok, I just read this story. Google Spreadsheets (today.reuters.com)

Going to http://spreadsheets.google.com got me to a "sign up" sneak peek page. But I was wondering...Who's going to use this? If you're a business do you want any of your critical data on Google's servers? Do you want any of your personal info in web spreadsheet?

If not what does that leave? Very simple one time spreadsheets with no personal or financial info...seems kind of limited.

I was wondering of any of you W's (I know that you're security minded Guru!) had any thoughts on this.

I could definitely use something like this...if/when it gets more fleshed out. As is right now it's pretty worthless, but as a stats-geek (sports, typically), the ability to share spreadsheets online with other stats-geek buddies around the country could be fun if nothing else.

I definitely wouldn't use it for business purposes or the sharing of personal info though.

Yeah, I can see myself using it for that purpose as well.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Well, apparently, google is great but it filters out tons and tons of searches to give us the best results but what if we really want to learn something new? May be this will be the answer. http://blog.wolfram.com/2009/03/05/wolframalpha-is-coming/
