Sorry for the late answer. Currently it involves the following simple steps to open the data in DataWarrior:
- Copy paste this GoogleDoc URL into you browser: w_C3lSuJ1jaR7AJa8hgGsc/export?format=tsv
and save the result file to your disk.
- Rename the file extension to .txt and open the file from DataWarrior

For the upcoming version of DataWarrior, which is due in a few weeks, I will provide a task to load data
directly from any URL. Then you can configure this task with above URL, put it into a small macro,
and save the macro file in the DataWarrior/macros forlder. In this case the DataWarrior menu would contain
an item to directly retrieve and open the data from the GoogleDoc site.
