    I am a Netvibes user and see nothing here to encourage me to even try PageFlakes.

    Good question. I had the pleasure of working on both My Yahoo and Google PHP. Now that I’m the Pageflakes CEO, I think there’s a LOT different about Pageflakes, and much more to come. Check out this post for some things I think are very different:
