Just before I went on vacation in the middle of December, Dan Sich at the U of Waterloo really hit his stride in experimenting with Hab.la as an alternative to MeeboMe widgets. When I returned from vacation I let his posts sit until I made the time to digest them, and today noticed this update:
Dan writes, "Bad news: a Hab.la staffer just confirmed for me that there is a cap on the number of users that can see any given widget at any given point in time. Currently that max number is 5... I believe this means that site-wide or OPAC-wide installation of the Hab.la script would be rather futile. Only 5 people could see the widget at any given point in time. OPACs and library websites both frequently get more than 5 users at a time."
Bummer. It's always nice to have alternatives, but it seems at this time, Hab.la isn't a viable one. Thanks for the legwork, Dan!
