A variety of iWidget widgets available in the catalog - after you read the 5900+ word licensing agreement - it's pretty straight-forward. But I'm looking for a statement of direction on OpenSocial.
Also, in the Twitter widget -I read this, "When prompted provide your Twitter account information.This will be stored into Notes account preferences and will be a one time setting." Which leads to a question - will people be comfortable providing their employer/enterprise applications with personal passwords for accounts they use on a personal basis? What happens if the Twiiter account is hacked - does the employer bear some risk if the passwords are vulnerable (not managed as peers with enterprise passwords). More questions rattling around in my head than benefits...
