Dynamic Excel on the Cloud With Javascript!

I have previously linked to a spreadsheet stored on Skydrive, but I have been disappointed that the possibilities for using live spreadsheets are greatly limited by the lack of support for VBA.  It seems that Microsoft have now decided to provide programming support through Javascript.  This seems like a weird business decision on their part to me, but who am I to question the mysterious ways of Microsoft.

Jan Karel Pieterse has recently added an excellent introduction to all this on his site:
