My prediction is that the Google API will spawn a bunch of child services.

Notably one to poll for an active key as a workaround to the 100 queries/ day limit. Since, all you need to do is register 10 - 20 accounts while you're watching TV or talking on the phone, I've already started about writing some kind of shared memory widget for picking a random key from a pool of many. Something like...

# $soap->doGoogleSearch(&_key()...);

sub _key {

   my $rand = $api_keys{rand(scalar(keys %api_keys))};

   $api_keys{$rand} ++;


   if ($api_keys{$rand} == 100) { delete $api_keys{$rand}; }

   return $rand;


...which any right minded person would agree is begging to be a web service of it's own.
