- Google Base data API is more or less the Atom Publishing Protocol.
- This means you can read/write/search
- The GBase data model is just adding key/value pairs to each entry
- Google Base is a store of records/entries with these key/values
- key can come from a predefined list or you can make up your own
- limited access to your Google Base silo can be assigned to a 3rd party

It's actually fairly straight forward, though obviously there's a
limit to what you can model without hierarchy. There is another data
model Google provides called the GData model which isn't compatible
but allows for deeper structures.
