Widget Prime(r)

The widget conversation continues. More activity around the 'what' and 'how' of teh modern widget. Just as the widget specification was released several people began posting retrospectives or primers on widgets. There are three posts that I feel are worth reading for anyone tracking this space.

The first two are by Niall Kennedy. Take a look through all of his posts, well worth it. He appears to put a fair amount of time and energy into each entry. They are substantial and filled with specifics. He has one post on widget formats and another on updating the data in widgets. As you might imagine these are on the technical side.

The last one is from R/WW. This post looks at the short history of widgets. It can certainly be argued as to the who/what/where/when of the origination of widgets, but this post starts at a practical place that is highly relevant and appropriate for the current conversation.
