    Danny,

    Great post – comprehensive and thoughful. Wonderwheel concept is interesting. As you mention, none of it seems be to “ground breaking” but nonetheless it’s great to see Google exploring new interfaces and presentations of results and data.

    Video is going to be extremely productive for Google and for marketers so I can see that being brought to fore in a big way, soon.

    As you point out, Google isn’t innovating here. I’d go further and say that they’re not even offering state of the art in their versions of these features–and I see their timidity as a sign that they are at best half-hearted about pursuing them. Kosmix strikes me as a much more serious exploratory search play.
