Recently I created a page here called Echoes that aggregates my social activity from various sites such as Twitter, Flickr, Delicious bookmarks and more. Because this site is static, I needed a service that can:
- Grab the feeds from multiple sources,
- Aggregate, transform and filter content so the end result only contains recent activity,
Yahoo Pipes is a service that can perform all of the above and, because of its graphical interface of connecting balloons with pipes, it’s also tons of fun to play with for days.
