Yahoo Pipes is "an interactive feed aggregator and manipulator". The service easily allows you and me to create a feed of feeds, sometimes known as 'life streams', though I like to call them: soup.

Here's a screencast showing how easy it is to create a stream of your online activity, and the JavaScript required to add the feed to your blog with a bit of sexy icon magic too boot.

I've published 38 videos for new developers, designers, UX, UI, product owners and anyone who needs to conquer the command line today.

If you can't view the screencast, try DivX Web Player for Windows or the Mac.

You can also see a working demo of the soup in action (just view the source to see the JavaScript used).

The Yahoo pipes are a pretty impressive tool, but the once thing I find lacking is the ability to modify the output, in particular, I would really like to know the source of the feed when aggregating feeds. That said, if anyone know how - do let me know.

As always, let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
