I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

This is an old page from Rod Begbie's blog.

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

kindlefeeder.com - RSS and Atom Feed Subscriptions For Your Amazon Kindle

Get any RSS feed automagically daily on your Kindle. Great for getting the newspapers and magazines (*cough*Economist*cough*) that you can’t buy a subscription for. (Built by a resident of Betahouse)

Sorry, Google Reader users...

A bug introduced by Google is causing my feed to break their RSS reader. I’ve reported it, so hopefully it will be remedied quickly.

Pipes from RodBegbie

Here are the pipes I’ve created so far. Wish Flickr used the same ID for photos in regular streams as well as in pools, but I’m happy with a slight decrease in duplicity.

Pipes: Rewire the web

Wicked cool RSS/Atom masher-upper from Yahoo. Nice GUI and mapping model, which means making a Boing Boing feed without Xeni Jardin can essentially be a drag’n’drop operation.

Official Google Blog: Your inbox for the web

The new Google Reader UI is a vast improvement over their initial release. Still not something I’d use, but definitely recommendable to feed-reading newbies.

Ning Atom API

Ning are sharing out all the user-generated data as Atom feeds, and will soon be supporting Atom Publishing to modify data. Hooray for non-roach-motels.

API - Lucene Web Service

Cool stuff (in a gloriously uncool way). A servlet to handle remote Lucene queries which is based on Atom-Pub, XOXO and OpenSearch. Hooray for well-defined standards which will speed up coding.

RSS Eclipse Plugin: RSS View

RSS feedreader plugin for Eclipse. Piping FogBugz’s RSS feeds into this will make it easy to keep track of my bugs in the IDE.

Burningbird: We Interrupt This Commercial Break with a Word about RSS

Oh, fucking hell. Dave Winer’s started another dick-swinging war about RSS, this time claiming that a group he started no longer exists, which came as something of a surprise to the nine members.

The 3 Hour Tour is Now Available! : FeedLounge

Finally had a chance to play with FeedLounge. It’s a very nice interface, that’s for sure — I’d recommend this over Bloglines to new RSS users. I’m probably going to stick with self-hosted Gregarius for now, though, since it’s free and free.

Gregarius » A Free, Web-based Feed Aggregator

Really awesome looking self-hosted feed reader. I’ve been using Feed on Feeds for the last month or so, but this looks light-years ahead of it.

Google Reader

Google’s long-rumoured RSS-reader launched. Tagging, keyboard navigation, and server-based? If they can up the responsiveness of the server, Bloglines may well be fucked.
