Are widgets the next big thing?

’tis said they will be the big thing of 2007…

I remember Dave Winer saying (somewhere!) that his goal was to write blogging software that could be set up in 11 seconds… which is pretty much the same speed goal that widgets have: drag & drop tolls for those scared of looking under their blog’s hood. (& who can blame them!)

So now there’s some widgets on here, courtesy of snipperoo a UK company. Their beta service works, though the flow through the site isn’t yet as smooth as it could be. For starters, here’s Hugh Macleod’s Gaping Void a well known, Scobelized, who through his work with Stormhoek wines (I think) broke the big Threshers Wine Voucher story Christmas 2006.
