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.

UK EVENTAttend 2024

The conference for people who are passionate about the web. 8 amazing speakers with real human interaction and content you can't just read in a blog post or watch on a tiktok!

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.
