Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

The Nokia guys showed me WidSets yesterday. It's a very cool service that allows people to make simple widgets which get sent to your phone and run on your phone. They are similar to OS X widgets and do various things like read RSS feeds, show flickr images for a particular tag, or show a Technorati feed. It's still in Beta, but seems to work well. It works on Java phones so will work on non-Nokia phones as well.

I have a Nokia E61 that I tried Widsets Wigets on and it works great. I think this service has the potential to be huge. It's probably the best mobile application out there.
