Netvibes Widget of my Shared Items [en]

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”]( from Google Reader hidden in there ([grab the feed!]( “Sharing” is [the reason I switched to Google Reader]( over a year ago.

I’m sitting in a workshop about [UWA widgets]( at [Paris Web](, which had me looking at [netvibes]( 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:

Add to Netvibes

**Update:** how disappointing! I thought it was going to look like this in the blog post:

My Shared Items Netvibes Widget

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]( “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]( If I was randomly browsing around, it’ll be in [my links]( If it was a video I watched on YouTube, it’ll end up in [my VLog]( If I wanted to share a quote, it’ll be [in my Tumblr]( 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.

Le Web 3: Recap [en]

[fr] Résumé (sans les liens, cliquez dans le corps du billet):

Positif: atmosphère et gens sympas, bon réseautage, excellente nourriture, voir des anciens amis et en faire de nouveaux, Hans Rosling (et danah bien sûr), bon choix du lieu de conférence, en-cas dans le hall, et un compliment concernant ma brève prestation sur scène.

Négatif: mauvais wifi, fête trop bruyante, récupération politique (même si je pense que Loïc pèche plus par excès d'enthousiasme pas toujours bien placé, et par manque de "sensibilité clients", comme lors de l'épisode Ublog), niveau un peu "grand public" des présentations, pas de fête de clôture.

En somme, contente d'être venue malgré les déceptions, mais pas certaine que je remettrai ça la prochaine fois.

Right, in telegraphic style, here’s a wrap-up of how my [LeWeb3]( went.

**Positive:** overall nice atmosphere and people, good networking, excellent food, saw old friends again and made new ones, was blown away (like many others) by [Hans Rosling’s presentation]( (both by the numbers he gave and the [software]( I liked the venue, thought the sizing was right (small enough to encourage people to communicate, without being cramped). Break food/drinks were nice (even if there was no [bottled water]( Somebody said [something nice about my brief panel contribution]( Impressed at Loïc organising something this big in so little time.

**Negative:** [bad wifi](, [noisy party](, [political takeover]( (though I do believe that Loïc messes up more by excess enthusiasm and some lacking in customer care skills — like with [Ublog]( — than because he’s a “bad guy”), not being in the target audience (topics were a bit too general for me), and not having a good-bye party or some chance to say good-bye to people (people left little by little and I hardly got to see anybody before they left).

Overall, I’m glad I came, but I’m not sure I’d come to this event again.
