Think you have a short attention span now? The future looks even more like a blipvert (submit yours here?). And just when I've figured out that multi-tasking may not be the best way to get things done. I truly believe that we need more time to think about things, the impact of those things, process them (hopefully learn from them), and continue moving forward. So user beware, there are more and more things out there to attract your attention, and the modus operandi is: "It has to be compelling enough for someone to want to grab it and place it onto their page." Widgets are the new ad kid on the block. And there are so many things you can do with them... SmartLinks - 02, Widget Ads, Google Gadget Ads, Google Gadgets, SnaggableAds (pointroll | clearspring).
Thanks to Kevin Crawford for the heads up - or shall I say - the hypnotic stare.
ps. Anyone know how to remove the skin of the Chumby, so it just shows the window?
