This evening's Second Life hack

Here’s another attempt to bring external data into Second Life — this time it’s the latest news via RSS feeds:

The RSS feed items are fetched and displayed by the life preserver that I’m wearing in this picture:

The donkey work is done by an external RSS aggregator that fetches feeds from news sites and my favourite library blogs.  Whenever a new item appears in a feed, it gets queued up to be fetched and displayed by the life preserver.

So, I might look daft wearing it, but I’ll always have the latest news from the outside world at my fingertips!

  1. Did I see you wearing it in SL last night? Looked like a rectangle rezzing around your middle?

    Glad it was meant to be there.

  2. Hhhhmmmm — it was probably just another one of my failed experiments in fashion!
