What do you call things like Flickr, Microsoft Gadgets, Google Maps, Amazon Affiliate parts?

Ive been struggling to communicate with others what the new Internet ecosystem is made up of and it hit me a few minutes ago.

They are Internet Connected Components.

When you go to Kayak Buzz or ZVents, what do you see? Two ICCs. One is a Google Map. Another is a AdSense bar.

When you go to Dave Winers blog, what do you see? One ICC. Its the Community Directory on the right side that points to an OPML file somewhere else on the Internet.

When you go to Gabe Riveras blog, what do you see? One ICC. Its the Memeorandum box that you can put on your own site.

When you go to Caterina Fakes blog, what do you see? One ICC. Its the Flickr bar to the right side of her blog.

When you go to Naked Conversations, our book blog, what do you see? Two ICCs. One from Amazon and one from Google.
