We have two very obvious examples to push; the real time VOEvent feed 
(s) into Google Sky via VOEventNet and eSTAR, and the PLASTIC- 
enabling of Google Sky, which makes it accessible from other VO  
tools... and crucially allows you to push any VO data you want from  
the backend vis our middleware into Google Sky for visualisation.

What journal though, PASP perhaps? Or A&A... I don't think MNRS or  
ApJ would take it?
