On Sunday, April 29th, 2007, Fred Wilson posted about the fact that “widgets suck” was the most popular search displayed in his lijit search widget tag cloud, suggesting that if his readers “really think that widgets suck, keep typing it in.”
It appears that the Internet has spoken…for what it’s worth.
As of midday on Monday, April 30th, 2007, the top search displayed on Fred Wilson’s lijit widget is no longer widgets suck. The top search is booger, followed by pants, then socks, with widgets suck all the way back in fourth place.
