News Bubbles

Monday, October 16, 2006
I am trying this new widget and deploying it in this post. If it turns out interesting, it might be integrated into the site design.

News Bubbles
Newzbubble gathers most of the major news feeds (depending on the edition you select) renders them as bubbles and allows you to see which stories are the most popular.

  • I see the square, but nothing in it...

  • hrmm.. thanks for the feed back.. what browser do you use and do you have javascripts blocked? Other sorts of blocking? I have ad-block on and can still see it.. wonder what the difference is.

  • Ok, I use firefox. Not sure about the blocking. How would I know? I saw some bubbles for a second, but now a blank box again.

    By the way how is your beautiful baby boy doing? The girls must love him :-)

  • I hope you also incorporate more baby pics in to the design. The fuzzy head just lowers my blood pressure. What a cutie. As for the widget, well, moving things on websites disturb me somehow.
