Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).

2003-1-14

New and improved

Thought I'd mention something new I've been hacking on for the last few evenings. It's not all done yet, but people are e-mailing me about it so here's a bit of an introduction:

    The Internet Topic Exchange

It's the first (as far as I know) real-life implementation of Ridiculously Easy Group Forming. Basically, it lets you create sites like KMPings just by filling out a form.

Once you've created one, you can send TrackBack pings to it, and see them like so. There's also RSS for the aggregator junkies.

With any luck Matt Mower will be supporting it with his LiveTopics tool, so it'll be trivial to use from Radio as well.

Any suggestions / feature requests?
