Clueless Pyjamas

I don't follow the clowns at pyjamas/osm/open source/er what? media, but i do follow Jeff and have been relying on him to keep me informed of any noteworthy antics from this bunch of loons.

Google Base is now live. Gary has been poking around a bit and the upshot is, that he think's it's not something for joe average, at least not yet, and John vaguely agrees. Me? Im undecided, i've not played with it much since we last spoke about it, but i will be having a little dig around later today.
