I’ve been playing with Yahoo Pipes again, this time for something a bit more useful.
There are a number of blogs from IBMers here in the UK which cover WebSphere related topics at varying degrees of frequency. Some are solely WebSphere related whilst others talk about all sorts of subjects including WebSphere.
The WebSphere related posts from UK IBMer blogs pipe takes the feeds from a number of these blogs and uses the content analysis module to filter only the WebSphere related posts into one convenient feed. It currently takes input from the following blogs:
- Drive Through… – i.e me 😉
- The Lost Outpost – Andy Piper
- David Currie
- Gendal World – Richard Brown
- SOA Tips ‘n’ Tricks – Various
- A Hursley view on WebSphere MQ – Various
This is not an exhaustive list of the possible bloggers, but is a start. If you think a blog should be added, let me know. This pipe could easily be cloned to add feeds for other IBM software brands as well.
What would be really nice (if the folks at Yahoo Labs are listening) is if the fetch module could take a URL input that pointed to an OPML file such as the one maintained by Elias Torres. Then you could imagine a configurable pipe with a text input that fed into the filter meaning you could filter on all sorts of topics such as Second Life for example.
