loving my monkey

It seems that my RSS kvetch yesterday inspired a certain internet superstar to whip out a niftly little RSS utility, charmingly called RSS Monkey.

What does the monkey do? He installs easily (no Perl libraries required) and he's infinately configurable (using Brand Ben Brown's template buster-outer). Basically he'll suck in any RSS feed you point him at and spit it out in whatever format you decide.

I love this monkey. Check out the first-ever Powazek Productions Repository of Feeds to see the monkey go. Go, monkey! Go!

» RSS is some sexy stuff. I was playing with a PHP implementation of it for my new site, but why bother when there's a Brand BenBrown™ available? :)

Now I need to learn to put my stuff into an RSS feed. Not that anyone would use it, but then again, no one would use my AvantGo page, but I'm doing it anyway ... Sometimes "just because" is a great reason.

Thanks for pointing this out Derek.

  Gaming the system: How moderation tools can backfire
Sometimes all the widgets backfire, encouraging the very behavior they're designed to avert. The rules have a dangerous side-effect: they create a game.
