It looks a bit like Blinki's more or less dead or inactive.
3 new messages, the last one end of June.

Well maybe everybody went on a 2-3 month vacation ?;-)

Here's something I came across during a Dublin conference last week:
http://widget.vodafone.com/dev/

It looks like a rather good match to what this project said it wanted to
archive.
No native apps of any kind, more WebApps or "Widgets" as those are also just
a combination or HTML, XML with CSS, JavaScript and a couple of other (W3C)
standards.

Furthermore, Vodafone got support for a whole lot of S60 based devices
already, but doesn't outrule iPhone support for those in future. Blinki at
least proposed to target the iPhone first, so the 2 ideas seem to complement
each other. Plus Vodafone wishes to get this more standardized than they
already see it, and at least with JavaME (and I believe also parts of
Eclipse Mobile/Embedded) they are also involved in standard organizations
like the JCP.

This could be a (Red) ray of light to get Blinki start blinking its lifeline
?!;-)

Good Luck,
Werner

Hi Werner,

I wish I could have 2-3 month vacation. I reposted a msg I sent to the
blinki mail list last week to this group as a new topic.
