Blank Module
Does exactly what it says. Installed the module, pasted the code for my LibraryThing widget into the box, reloaded the front end, and viola. Thank you for a simple way to plug in widgets.

All Weblinks
A nice way to present weblinks without having to drill down into categories. Nice set of options for presentation. The developer was incredibly responsive and helpful in resolving an operator error. Highly recommended.

It doesn't get much more basic than this. What I like most about this module is that the text string can be coded with HTML including CSS tags and links, so not every quote needs to appear in exactly the same format. Lightweight, simple, straightforward. Did exactly what I wanted it to do and loads pretty much instantly. The randomization seems to work well also (I have a short list of quotes I'm cycling with the idea of adding more as I find them, and there doesn't seem to be a bias toward any one quote).

MultiTwitter
I wanted a way to combine other specific feeds, twitter keyword search, and my own low-volume twitter feed into one timeline in a module related to the site topic. Excellent and easy to set up module (be sure to get and install the required plug-in as well).

Wish list: Twitter Account kill list (to curb spam), include the "- (search term)" documentation for open searches in the XML file so it pops up in the administration menu. Those are very minor quibbles. This is a solid, elegantly coded module.

K2
Awful documentation. Circular linking web site. Unattractive content template. Installation issues that are over a year old (requiring installation of Simple Image Gallery and not recognizing when it is installed). I found this to be utterly unusable and uninstalled it.
Owner's reply

Some facts to keep in mind:
- There is an immense source of documentation and resources in both the K2 community and on simon.getk2.org with quality docs and tuts from Simon Wells.
- The best template designers support K2 by default on all new templates they release. That should mean something about the "content templates" in K2.

In order to use K2 you have to understand its power. If you don't yet understand its power, it comes down then to what you need, which may be just articles on a table list...
