Playing with Yahoo Pipes

I’ve been playing with Yahoo Pipes today creating all kinds of stuff. Quite a simple User Interface and potentially very good. Here is a pipe of all the class blogs for HeathfieldCPS. I know RSS widgets can do all this but the potential is very impressive.

Here is a Pipe that I didn’t make but was there to be viewed. Lots of feeds all showing relevant news for a ‘High School Library’.

    Yahoo pipes is awful, I had to work with it for a project. The only good thing is the yahoo location engine. FYI I use xfruits to bring all the school blogs together and primaryblogger has its own site wide blog feed plugin. It is a much nicer and cleaner way of doing things as it keeps the guid’s in a sane structure.

    Crumbs! When I first saw it I thought – yes- a way to easily link them all. Then I read the comment from John & though – bum! But he has some suggestions there. Whatever you do to make it easier to read them all is fine by me. The aternative is to stop them doing it but that defeats the object of the exercise! 😉
