Widgets are ALIVE. When you change something it is instantly changes across your entire distributed content network.
So alive, widgets provide GREAT opportunities for collaboration such as:
* Multi-author widgets (as other curators to provide input to your widget feeds).
* Multi-thread - A "liberal arts" widgets for Vassar College, where I graduated, could address history, art and philosophy easily with multi-threads (can get confusing and so you may want separate widgets, but there are other ways to organize a single widget to provide multi-thread content).
* User Generated Content - Widgets are far from Wikis so ask for input and curate great input in to reinforce the value of your "widget network".
