If you read this blog “on the blog”, and look at my very cluttered sidebar, you probably noticed there is a feed of my [“shared items”](http://www.google.com/reader/shared/09081754150283874260) from Google Reader hidden in there ([grab the feed!](http://www.google.com/reader/public/atom/user/09081754150283874260/state/com.google/broadcast)). “Sharing” is [the reason I switched to Google Reader](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2006/10/13/i-might-be-switching-to-google-reader/) over a year ago.
I’m sitting in a workshop about [UWA widgets](http://dev.netvibes.com/doc/) at [Paris Web](http://2007.paris-web.fr/), which had me looking at [netvibes](http://www.netvibes.com/) again. Even though it never clicked for me, I know lots of you use it (I check my stats, yes I do).
So, here we go. One thing leading to another, I created a widget with my shared items in it. It’s more for fun than because it’s really useful, as you netvibes users can create it really easily — but hey, here it is:
**Update:** how disappointing! I thought it was going to look like this in the blog post:
Not there yet, it seems.
**Update 2:** something I’ve been wanting to do with netvibes (not sure how feasible it is, actually): create a tab with “my stuff” in it. See, I’m [scattered online](http://sbooth.jaiku.com/ “De-scattering with Jaiku, thanks.”). And the stuff I “share” is also scattered. If I found it through my feed reader, it’ll appear as [a whole post in my shared items](http://www.google.com/reader/shared/09081754150283874260). If I was randomly browsing around, it’ll be in [my del.icio.us links](http://del.icio.us/steph/). If it was a video I watched on YouTube, it’ll end up in [my VLog](http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=A16F4B078F1B6E1F). If I wanted to share a quote, it’ll be [in my Tumblr](http://steph.tumblr.com/). Creating something to collect all these “things of others that I consider worth passing on” would be really nice. I wonder if a netvibes tab would be a solution — and if people would use it at all.
