I had a chance to run around for a little while yesterday and snap some photos of the developers in action at the We Are Microsoft - Charity Challenge Weekend event in Dallas this weekend. Take a look at the photos here. Technorati Tags: We Are Microsoft,Charity Challege Weekend,Dallas,Flickr ...
To illustrate what I mentioned in the previous post about how swapping out one connector for another to achieve a completely different task would be very simple - I did just that. I noticed that Dave Winer has been working on some sort of Flickr->Twitter app. I changed about 4 lines of code in the Gcal_to_Twitter RSBScript to make it into Flickr_to_Twitter. In the updated script, all I did was change the call to gcalSearch to a call to the atom feed of my Flickr photos. Then I do a quick check ...
Here's an example of creating a feed of your Flickr contacts' favorite photos using RSSBus, which makes complex feed parsing/manipulation tasks easy. In my next post after this one I'll talk about how you can use RSSBus caching so that you can control which items are returned in the actual feed (for those with large numbers of contacts or favorited photos).

Lets say you wanted to get the RSS feed for a particular Flickr Group called "MyGroup". All you had to do to know the URL for this feed was: "http://www.flickr.com/grou... + MyGroup + "/pool/feed/?format=rss_200" Easy as pie. No matter the group name, it was always very easy to find the URL for its feed. No longer. Now, the urls look like this: http://api.flickr.com/servi... (the format parameter can also be atom_03). On top of the fact that ...
