Hello Gadgets TF and IDE WG,
FYI - The editor of the W3C Widgets specification, Marcos Caceres, sent the
message below to the W3C's Web Applications Formats mailing list expressing
interest in coordinating with OpenAjax. Also, he wants to join OpenAjax
Alliance as an individual and join the Gadgets TF. Paperwork is in process.

Hi,
During the previous face 2 face meeting in Boston, Jon Ferraiolo of
the Open Ajax Alliance demonstrated a widget proposal and a set of
adapters which may be of interest to the working group. The OAA specs
are more closely aligned with "web widgets" (akin to iGoogle gadgets)
rather than "desktop widgets".  However, there is plenty of potential
for cross-pollination of ideas between the groups. Please see in
particular:

Marcos
