widgets…i am sold

there is alot of talk out there about widgets and how they will be used in the 2.0/3.0 space. i still believe that 2.0 = distribution. with that said widgets are the wave of the future. you ask whats next…this is it. some will say it is now because of the myspace lovers out there with slide, photobucket, youtube (player), etc. but none of these take the community aspect into account.

a company i have been watching for about 2 months now seems to be getting it. vod pod has a video widget that is awesome. it allows you not only to upload your own videos but pick from a community of topics and producers you like. the wideget looks very cool and is screaming for some type of ad platform.

widgets could be the death of the portals and major websites alike when you think of the way the deliver content and the fact they can be placed anywhere. myspace has shown widgets could work and get a brand not scared tp take a chance and the dollars will roll in. just saying…i have seen crazier things.

    I guess widgets are the equivalent of the drag and drop icons on the desktop. Just a way of organising information on a personal level. I too am glad to this evolution.
