I've seen simular things at the A'dam demo jam and it looks certainly cool. My only concern is that Mac users can't join in the fun, no?
No unfortunatly no they can't. The only solution for Mac users would be to have the information written as a BSP and then the widget to look at that BSP. There was another weblog that demonstrated this method (it was the SAP logged on users widget).
My method above is only for Windows as it exploits functionality which is only available with the Windows version of the SAP GUI.
Maybe using AJAX or web services is a more cross platform approach to things.
