Yahoo! Widget For Stickam Online Presence

Over the weekend I developed a custom Yahoo! Widget to show the online presence of a single Stickam friend. Yahoo! Widgets are little desktop applications based on the Konfabulator application platform that Yahoo acquired. Developing a Yahoo! Widget requires a knowledge of XML and JavaScript. You also have to be pretty good at creating PNG graphics with transparency, drop shadows, and gradients.

I have submitted my Stickam widget to the Yahoo! Widget Gallery but I don’t know if it will be accepted because they may object to my use of the Stickam logo for the dock image. You can download the Yahoo! Widget engine at http://widgets.yahoo.com/ and then search the gallery for widgets you might find useful. You can always obtain my Stickam widget directly from me if it is not added to the gallery.
