My first widget

It’s probably not the first. The Flickr badge you see below is a widget, too, I think. But I had a long conversation this evening about widgets with Dan Gisolfi, the mashup guru from IBM, and Ken Wasch, president of SIIA, and I can’t resist trying to add one to my blog tonight. This is a Chinese phrase widget.

I’m not sure this will work, but here’s the page I got it from so you can see how readily available widgets are: http://www.china-8.com/cms/sites/china-8/section.cfm?id=178. And if you look at my 6 September post about Vincent Cerf, you’ll see that I added a Fora.tv video (not just a link). Is this a widget too? In any case, I can see that my life, or at least my blogging, is going to be transformed!

Tomorrow you’ll find out what the British Library and Berkshire Publishing have in common.
