PayPal Co-Founder's Startup, Slide Inc. Emerges As the No. 1 Widget Maker

"Max Levchin already changed electronic commerce as a co-founder of PayPal, an online payment service that is expected to process more than $40 billion in transactions this year.
Now, he's tinkering with a new way to make money off Internet widgets -- high-tech shorthand for the mini-applications planted on the personal pages of online social networks and other popular Web sites like Google."

"Levchin's latest startup, Slide Inc., has emerged as the No. 1 widget maker so far, largely because its programming tools have made it easy for people to add more pizazz to the pictures and videos decorating trendy hangouts like MySpace, Facebook and Bebo."
