Is there a venue for me to show off my HTML skills?
One opportunity that's popped up in the last few days is worth mentioning because it's something that can actually make you some money in addition to just peer recognition: the Apple Dashboard Widget Competition.
To quote the site itself:
What Is a Dashboard Widget?Of course, if you're not on the Mac OS X platform this won't do you much good, but on the other hand the spiffy Konfabulator just arrived on the Windows platform so you could work within that context and create some widgets for the Windows community using similar ingredients.
The Dashboard and Dashboard Widgets are intriguing new technologies that will be available in Mac OS X Tiger. Dashboard is a semi-transparent layer that zooms across your screen at the press of a key. It's also home to a new kind of application called a Widget. A Widget can be self-contained like a clock or calculator, display information from the Internet like headlines or the status of an order, or enhance an application by adding features or making the application easier to use. Great Widgets are small, lightweight, and simple, with a compelling interface that's fun to use.
