(recap: AICS3 has two new color features: Color Guide is amazing, and Kuler allows you to bring into your map the latest social-networking-based color palettes that are popular today)

Pantone has a new color system called Goe and in the write-up they have an example of using their software where someone is shown creating a palette by picking some colors from a photo of a globe.

Mordy points out that Illustrator doesn't have the new Goe colors as a swatchbook, so it may be awhile before it is easily accessible from Illustrator.

(in response to the thread title, since you didn't actually raise the question in the post itself!)

Color Guide and Kuler are awesome when it comes to generating pallets, but they don't do anything for specifying colors that will reproduce predictably on press. There isn't an easy way to translate a kuler swatch set to PMS colors, which is where this Goe system seems to step in. The "1000 more colors with 3 less inks" is pretty interesting though.
