Why is this important? When Apple released Dashboard Widgets for OS X they “copied” Konfabulator.

Minor update: eweeks Peter Coffee comments on : Yahoo Rewrites Script for Web’s Next Act, and notes : Konfabulator acquisition moves content provider into post-browser network-service delivery. (can you say “Widgets for your Phone and / or TIVO”?)
plus : ( previously unnoticed…) the Comic history of Konfabulator, starting at Part 1
