Gaping Widget

Is the absence of javascript widgets from WordPress.com a gaping void? Is the consequent absence of Hugh MacLeod’s gapingvoid widget from WordPress.com blogs a great pity? My answer to the first question is that it’s not as big a hole as the security hole javascript poses for sites like WordPress.com.

I provided my answer to the second question on a blog on which I could have used the gv widget, but chose not to. The best way to destroy what’s special about HughToons is to succeed in having them all over the place… by which I mean, in the sidebar of too many blogs.

Although I don’t subscribe to gapingvoid these days, I enjoy dropping by now and then to read something like this recent post. My favorite HughToon is Mistakenly, by the way.
