You can view gadgets as thumbnails with this link: google.com/ig/directory?root=/ ...

But this link will alter the iGoogle directory layout and side links.

I now have this thumbnails layer too, but I have an intriguing link "My Community", which says: "No one in your community has written a gadget yet. You can be the first to write your own gadget".

"Write your own gadget" direct to: google.com/ig/gmchoices?synd=\ ...

I knew this "Make your own gadget" page for some time, but the idea of community seems new and seems to refer to a "network".

I'm curious to know what Google plans to do with iGoogle on its social side, and how they'll deal with orkut-iGoogle potential confusion (I bet they'll transform orkut in a dating site...).

BTW, collaborative gadgets sounds perfect for the Google Apps startpage (especially in the Team Edition).

[put at-character here]Jérôme Flipo, the 'My Community" link was announced back in April of 2007. It allows you to see gadgets made by your contacts. For example, when I go to that area, I see Philipp's gadgets since he is on my contact list in Gmail.
