Dynamic data in Google Earth

The new version 4.3 of Google Earth provides many new features, including the day/night effect a clouds layer, dynamic data of traffic, weather, news and more.
We've done several dynamic things already: traffic, weather, news courtesy of the New York Times, and YouTube. But don't wait for us to create more dynamic data - we've always believed that the greatest content is created by our users. Through the magic of Network Links in KML, any dataset can be set to auto-update at whatever interval is appropriate. The KML Gallery has several great examples, such as real-time earthquakes and current air quality.
