Hi Drew, have you seen the 'social media firehose' yahoo pipes configuration?

I've been fiddling with Pipes to build my new site. It's great - took me a while to figure out but, once it works, it's strangely satisfying...

Drew,

You asked, so I'll supply... Personally, yes, Yahoo Pipes is straight-forward enough. But, similar to you, I find it "strangely satisfying". It is far from being the silver bullet for the PRO who knows they need to 'get' RSS. but needs something which is fool-proof to operate. The interface [IMHO]. Isn't quite there yet.

A good suggestion for an age-old (well internet age) problem - I'll be sure to give it a good look.
