- Krantenkoppen op popnuuz.com • 11 May 2009
Een tijdje geleden merkte ik dat krantenkoppen.be verdwenen was. Ik gebruikte die site regelmatig om een overzicht te krijgen van wat er in de kranten beweegde bewoog die dag, “wat ik gelezen zou moeten hebben”. Na enkele weken dacht ik:...
- CalendarBurner: Feedburner for iCal calendars • 28 Oct 2008
I am currently using my experience with milonga.be to build a similar site for Tango in Bulgaria. One of the major components of the site is the tango calendar. In this case I have chosen not to use a special...
- Grazr Widget for RSS feeds • 05 Sep 2007
I am always on the lookout for original ways to use RSS feeds, and the Grazr widget service is quite neat for text-based feeds. It consists of a Flash-based reader with a neat interface. Here an example for OverheardInNewYork:
- Reinventing the wheel: Twitter backchannel • 18 Apr 2007
I was chatting a bit with Bart about Barcamp, and I asked the inevitable question: “Should we do something with Twitter?” To which Bart’s answer was: “Maybe, but what?”. Let’s see:
- Yahoo! Pipes: Get-Remix-Deliver model • 15 Feb 2007
Yahoo! Pipes is an RSS mashup application from Yahoo. It allows you to merge, sort, filter and combine RSS feeds. Since it is primarily a remix/mashup application, I’ve tried to list its features in my Get-Mix-Deliver model:
- How to visualize a timeline • 06 Jul 2006

- RSS is a hammer • 27 Sep 2005
We’re all excited by the promises of Web 2.0, we’re all awaiting the next really neat remix application/service of data, meta-data, analysis and presentation. But let’s not fall for the “I have a hammer, so all problems look like a...
- RSS with images: picture podcasting • 20 Jun 2005
There is something weird: after the audio-only iPods came the iPods with images, but there are no iPods for videos (yet). However, we already have video podcasts, but there are to my knowledge hardly any picture podcasts? Why did we...
