These days it seems like there are widgets for everything, including desktops, blogs, mobile devices, Facebook, iPhone and so on. My good friend Niall Kennedy is helping to put all of this into perspective with Widget Summit 2007, the second annual conference on widgets that he is organizing which takes place on October 15th & 16th at the brand new UCSF Mission Bay facility in San Francisco.
Widget Summit is a two-day conference on widgets and content syndication. Web pages have gotten smaller, dynamic, and distributed as components within the desktop, personalized homepage, social network, blog sidebars, mobile phones, and even dedicated hardware. Today’s publishers need to reach their audience wherever and whenever they may choose to interact with content. Widgets lead the way towards a distributed web loosely joined.
