The Joy of Technology

After a good weekend of coding, designing, tweaking, fetching content from other sites…  I think I’m past the “moving in” stage and can now sit back, relax, and enjoy.  The menus at the top of the page are ripped right from kieransmith.net (well, the old kieransmith.net) except for the photos, which come from eclecticthoughts.com before I gank that down and mirror this blog there as well.

So, I thought I’d get creative and see if I could use the RSS feed from my blog to get stuff into Facebook.  You know, why duplicate efforts?  So in my quest I discovered two nifty apps.

For wordpress.org participants (you host your own blog), there is Wordbook – a nifty app that integrates WordPress postings into Facebook.

Don’t host your own blog?  You’re hosting it at wordpress.com instead?  Not a problem!  Check out the WordPress.com Facebook application.

Even having worked on this sort stuff for 14 years now, with the last few years most definitely being full of “application-based” projects, technology never ceases to amaze me.  If you can think of it, someone else has already done it.  The real trick is doing it better!

    Instead of saying “fetching content from other sites,” I probably should have noted I was “fetching content from *my* other sites.” No, I don’t run around ganking other people’s content. ;-)

    Thats cool one dude. I haven’t heard about the wordbook before. In fact I was searching for something like this.
