Google Gadget Ventures

Google just announced their entry into venture funding with Google Gadget Ventures.

They will provide grants of $5,000 to those who’ve built gadgets they’d like to see developed further, then $100,000 in seed investment to those developers who’d like to build a business around the Google gadgets platform. The FAQs include more detail.

Bloggers discussing this program include Matt Cutts. John Claburn's article in Information Week also provides links to related articles and white papers.

John Blyberg has an old, but nicely detailed, description of some Google gadgets he designed for library use. Niall Kennedy discussed Gadgets as an AdSense Unit last month.
