Also check out Donald Farmer’s blog (http://www.beyeblogs.com/donaldfarmer/). It has a somewhat old post (Microsoft Project Gemini links) with lots of links to articles, press reports, analyst reports and blogs about Gemini.
Excel 2010 is a key part of the Gemini experience. Check out the Excel Team Blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/excel) for information about the cool features in Excel 2010 such as slicers, sparklines, improved data bars and charts, etc.
