Google Ends Research Database Program

Google will end their research database program at the end of January 09. The object was to provide large databases for scientific study, as described in this Wired article. The article also relates this project to the Gapminder system, which I assume will still exist.

The project will have only been around for a year. This example drives home the reality of what Google calls a beta and the caution that one should use before investing too much in their infrastructure.
