Just finished the Blog sidebar widgets panel at Widgets Live!. I was the only one foolish enough to try a live demo... which of course crashed and burned. I'm so glad I made a backup animation to show instead. I'm also told that I was nearly inaudible during most of the presentation. Note to self: Lean into the mike! Also, I forgot my VGA converter cable and had to jump off the platform right as we started to go grab it.
On the other hand, the panel discussion was fun. We're certainly in early stages; we had four people on the panel, and four completely separate terms for essentially the same things (widgets, gadgets, modules, parts).
