Open Wonderland and Google Docs Proof of Concept

I have been very quiet for the last while but as my work load eases out I've had some time to mess about with Open Wonderland again.

This time I've spent a couple of hours putting together a proof of concept (POC) to send information to Google Docs from inworld. In the following video you can see how a word processor document is created from an in world HUD.

The module is very rough and has only been thought of as a proof but if you want to check it out feel free to do so. As usual my code is in github: Proof of Concept for Google Docs and Open Wonderland Integration.

I have to say that the Google Data API has its quirks, although I have only spent a couple of hours using it, but it seems to be solid enough to create powerful client applications.

Any feedback is very welcome as usual!
