my 15 minutes of fame

Andy Warhol said once:

"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes."

I think it was my turn as when my latest widget was announced winner of the Big Widget Challenge, the news were posted on MASHABLE, one of the most important news websites about social networking & web 2.0.
I did a quick search on Google and found the widget being mentioned on another couple of sites:
BOL - Business On-Line (Japanese), STUFFLEUFAGUS & Colechurch Consulting.

--- UPDATE ---
just wanted to add two more links:

Daniel Todd who's blog is part of the MXNA and
StickyWidgets (bookmarked) that I found just minutes after publishing this post

Big thanks to all of you!

To celebrate it, I've changed the look & feel of this blog. To be honest, it wasn't easy because Blogger is not as flexible as other blog platforms but hey! I like it! :)

I just hope I can manage to have some free time to experiment more with Flash, build more widgets, games & write some more tutorials...

Congratulations Ernesto,
Well done on the widget contest. Don't spend the money wisely, I suggest that recklessness is the way forward!......

Congrats... That was a pretty cool widget. Being in Los Angeles, this is definitely something people will find useful/interesting.

Thanks Damian & Ming!

BTW, the prize ($) already has an owner (my girlfriend) :(
