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).


Blawgistan Times

Even lazier than the LazyWeb, the Blawgistan Times trawls the blogosphere for posts talking about it, and collects them all in one place.

Or does it? I haven't quite figured out how it works yet. It seems to involve a Topic Exchange channel somehow - presumably it syndicates that into the blog as well?

It's interesting to see how people are involving the Topic Exchange in their own projects. With a Topic Exchange channel, a Movable Type blog and my RSS to blog script, you can quite trivially build your own totally customisable LazyWeb-like site.

So, what's next?
