David, could you please create an account for

it was available the other day - 

details? If Florian does the same, then we can turn the Twitter widget
into an widget (assuming has a decent API).

A widget based on status net code would work if all you are doing is
following an account, or a hash tag, not sure about multiple accounts.

The real question in my mind is what do we really want to do with it.

A box that displays the time line for a single account is one option -
that can either be an official announcement channel or as it is being
used the last couple of days, retweets from the general stream - so you
can act as an editor for what you want to show on the web site, and do
so from multiple posters.

You can also decide that what you want to do is display what is being
said about the project - this would be the hash tag or search string
based box. That was what they did on the ooo wiki.

If you go that way then you a real question about twitter vs status net,
cause most of the conversation takes place on twitter - but it may be,
and I think it is, that the conversation happening under status net is
of more interest to us.

Finally we have the option to look at a full mico-blog.

Twitter/Status net is a reasonable way to broadcast a message but it is
also a very useful tool to listen with.

Thing about using it for broadcasting is that the time frames are very
small so you have to work in redundancy, either with multiple accounts
or multiple postings. The box on the web page or a micro-blog is a way
to address this temporal issue - but it is a trade off.

Anyway just a few thoughts,
