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!
