Hi Beth, Thanks for posting my Sprout presentation. SproutBuilder doesn't include seamless integration for uploading multi-page PDFs as a slideshow -- so I used Slideshare.net to create this widget about creating widgets. I can't take credit for the "widgets are the bumper stickers of the internet." If you google the phrase, you'll find that a company called Snipperoon distributed bumper stickers at an e-marketing conference that contained the slogan. I came across the bumper sticker at CitizenSpace in SF.

Here's a prediction that I will take credit for: nonprofits and foundations will move away from 'create a video' contests to 'create a widget' contests.

I mentioned this possibility during the webinar and then Sprout announced their first widget creation contest, connected to the Hellboy ii movie. They didn't get the idea from me... but there's a lot of potential here for the nonprofit sector to get supporters to not just post widgets on their facebook profiles but actually create widgets about the cause.

The company is called Snipperoo, no Snipperoon :-)
