My latest little contribution to the backwaters of t’Internet. http://winefeeds.wordpress.com

As I say in the first post…

Just cos I could I decided to run a third experiment using RSS – it’s simply brilliant (RSS that is). I set out to see how much wine-related information I could aggregate from around t’Internet.

I got the idea from del.icio.us (which I think is fabulous). You see I have a “wine” subscription on del.icio.us which sends me all the links that people tag with “wine”. So I took an RSS feed and put it into wordpress. Then I went off into the wine world to see what feeds I could find. Heaps or should that be vats.

  • eRobert Parker wine of the day 
  • Wine Spectator – Headlines, Daily Picks, Blog Posts
  • Decanter News
  • Berry Bros & Rudd Fine Wine Blog
  • Cork’d’s most popular

I also got a feed out of Flickr of all the photos tagged “wine”.

Separately I have Google alerts for wine. I don’t think they offer RSS. I’ll check. Maybe I’ll use them as a link blog in the body of the page along with my own thoughts on wine (currently on The Displaced Kiwi) . Watch this space.

I suspect I have just created another Internet backwater. But as before I’m having fun. If wordpress would let me have more that nine RSS feeds I’d fill it up there is heaps of content just waiting to be aggregated.
