Today was a good day. The presents were great and the food was wonderful. Several of us got together and gave a computer to my in-laws, which meant that I spent some time setting up the computer. By chance, we happened to be talking about the Google personalized homepage, so I gave them a demo. They really liked it.
Now I’ve got somewhere new to point them. Maybe it’s because of the holidays, but Google hasn’t updated its Google widgets directory in a few days. A couple sites have sprung up to fill the gap: Google Modules, by Philipp Lenssen and Alex Ksikes, seems to have the most widgets right now and the site includes an RSS feed. Meanwhile widQ.com has fewer widgets listed, but has them categorized and you can page through all the widgets.
Earlier today I only saw 5-6 widgets in the official Google directory. Looks like they just added another 5-6. Cool.
Update: There’s now a Matt Cutts module. That is just wrong in so many ways.
