New (e)Toy

I've started playing with a new (e)toy called SuprGlu. This is a site that lets you create new web pages with content drawn from the RSS Feeds of whatever sites you specify. It is another form of aggregator. What I like about this one is that it creates a user-friendly web page made up of that content.

I've started a test page -- mmahaffiana -- and added the feeds from this site, from my Flickr collection, and from my State Planning and Delaware GIS web sites. Ultimately, I'd like to use this to bring together news feeds relating to GIS and state coordination of GIS and spatial data as a communication tool for the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC). I'm a board member and am on the Communications Committee and I think we could use something like this.

Of course, now this entry will show up on that site. I hope it doesn't start some strange web-feedback loop.
