I’m working on a project where we require a web based RSS reader that can output RSS. Sounds crazy, I know, but basically we want to populate the RSS reader with a whole bunch of feeds, split into different categories, with each outputting as RSS. That RSS could then be republished as a feed on a page.

So, for example, if the topic was the Olympics, we could create a folder for each event. Then populate each of those folders with feeds from blogs about the relevant event. That would then output to via RSS (one feed out per folder) and could be republished. It would look something like this:

One web based RSS account – Olympics:
–> Rowing (12 feeds) —> RSS —> web page about Rowing
–> Swimming (10 feeds) —> RSS —> blog about swimming
–> Fencing (4 feeds) —> RSS —> vox profile of a fencer

Any suggestions?? Thanks!!

About Robin Hamman

My website predates Google by three years and I am somewhat nostalgic when I think about the command line entries I had to learn to control my 300 baud modem. For me, the internet, like the peer-to-peer dial-up BBSs that proceeded it, has always been social. We just lost sight of that for a decade or so when most people thought it was all about "internet shopping malls", inexpensive flights and cheap books. In internet years, I've been here a very long time so you'll have to forgive me if I repeat myself from time to time.

Why cybersoc.com? In 1995, I tried to register, for the purposes of researching "ordinary users", the username Cybersociologist on AOL. They truncated my name and I stuck with it....
