I’ve been getting up to speed on Clearspring, the widget platform, mainly because it’s one of the services on which I’m building my about-to-be-launched startup Wijard. There are some speedbumps. One of the bumps is that there are three different types of Launchpad for a widget. A bigger bump is that the differences between aren’t explained in a way that’s clear to me.
The constructive thing to do, I decided, was to make a start on an explanation that would be clear to me, and to people who think like me. The appropriate thing to do was to put the explanation in a widget. So here’s the widget. If I make any changes, I need to make them only once, in the widget itself, rather than in the multiple posts in which I’ve included the explanation.
