The new conference is aimed at the emerging widget economy, and being held at the Marines Memorial Club in San Francisco. Widgets Live! Is set to be a conference where developer's, business leaders and content producers can get together and understand how widgets, gadgets and modules can communicate and syndicate content effectively. The Widgets Live!
Website has not released speakers, panels, or a session list, but judging from this unique niche, and logo collage on Niall's website, we could guess that the list of participating companies might include Google, MSN, AIM, WordPress, Six Apart, Netvibes, Apple, MySpace, and Yahoo. Tickets are set at $100, and can be purchased online
