Building interactive widgets for the web with Adobe Flex

The word widget is something that has become a popular term to "describe an interface element that a computer user interacts with, such as a window or a text box." (wikipedia)

A new Adobe Flex web application called Sprout Builder lets users author their own media widgets [ "living content" ] that can be shared on many blogs and social network services along with websites.

Sprouts can be developed to be personal, promotional or informational material. Sprout Builder has an authoring environment that supports users to easily build a variety of different Sprouts.

You can pull administration data about your posted many times someone has seen or used your Sprout, for example.

Read more on this from source posting, where you can access a link for a test run of Sprout.
