Lots of discussion, everywhere, about Widgets. The common question is business model. I had interesting conversations on the topic yesterday with Chris Fralic (First Round Capital), Dick Costolo (Feedburner) and the folks over at NBBC.
I’ve also had a good parry with Brad Feld on the topic over on his terrific blog. (Thanks Ivan, I’ve fixed the link).
So, I am going to try to start a debate here with the best thinkers on the topic: Can the “widget management systems” companies build a real (ie, valuable enough for “venture returns”) business? Ed A, Hooman, Brad F, Mark J, Dick C, Chris F, Fred W, please have at it!
