    Widget for Dashboard, or a widget for something like Google's Personalized Homepage?

    If you're talking about Dashboard, I think an IM widget is probably more work than is worth it for the environment...just my opinion, however.

    There's a *text messaging* (SMS) widget, I know. I'm not sure about IM. Probably not thaaaat hard using already existing IM software on a Mac. One might be able to use Dashcode and existing over-web-browser IM systems like AIM Express....

    I gotta ask, what would be the point of such a widget? It's not like iChat isn't that hard to pull up anyways. I guess if you are spending 100% of your time in dashboard it makes sense...

    thanks for the replies so far

    It's not for me, but a client has asked so I said I'd look into it for them.
