We have received permission from Martin Angelov to include his "Who is online?" widget in Piwik.
See demo at: http://tutorialzine.com/2010/03/who-is-online-widget-php-mysql-jquery/
Re-mapping columns to Piwik:
I would like to work on this ticket to have a feel on how plugins are developed within Piwik.
Could you please confirm that this widget would be added on the dashboard using "Add a widget" -> "Live!" -> "Who is online?"
Also, would the widget be integrated as is or should its design be remodeled
to look like the other widgets. E.g: should it be enclosed in the "widget container", I'm refering to :
<div id="" class="widget">
Julien, you are welcome to work on it indeed :)
There's some ambiguity with the license and I haven't received a response from Martin yet, so I'll wrap this into a third-party plugin, in the interim.

It would be nice to do this I think, would improve our 'marketingness' as we could maybe put a little piwik logo or a link in the output?
Also, this widget is a nice idea: http://s04.flagcounter.com/count/lng/bg=FFFFFF/txt=000000/border=CCCCCC/columns=2/maxflags=18/viewers=0/labels=1/pageviews=1/

Integrated partly here, by @tsteur http://plugins.piwik.org/LiveTab
This could be developed in a plugin that could provide several different badges like this. Would be interesting! Especially since it could maybe also give Piwik more visibility if people embed it on their website.
In LiveTab I only display the number of visits etc in the browser tab of the Piwik user and I currently do not intend to extend it due to not having enough time :(
Maybe someone wants to develop this in a plugin? Added a label...
