Don’t you love it when you are going through your files and find something that you wanted to write about a few months ago, but never got around to?
That happened to me today.
A couple months ago, I took a screen shot of a Widget (presumably created by OSD Public Affairs) that syndicates news from DOD through a widget created by SpringWidget that anyone can download and post to their blog, Web site, etc.
Widgets are a relatively new addition to the Web 2.0 world, but many social media luminaries (including my colleague Steve Rubel) are saying they are the next big thing.
So lets review:
- Widgets = good
- Widgets syndicating your content for you = very good
- Not having good content = bad
And they say there is no good news coming out of Iraq…
