My Lifestream

by Christopher Paul on August 24, 2008

Ever since I signed up for 20 different social websites – many of them Twitter like micro-blogs – I’ve wanted to collect all the information in one place. Lots of people have, actually, and FriendFeed has gladly collected all my feeds and aggregated them in one central location. But I hate the idea that, if someone wants to see that collection they have to become a FriendFeed user. So I started looking at the WordPress experts out there and found a really good solution by David Cramer.

From the start, David included support for the big ones: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pownce, Digg, & Delicious. And while there are so many sites out there – and I wish David coded for them all, he’s taken care of that and gave instructions on how to add feeds not currently “supported” the way Facebook, Twitter, and the others are “out of the box.” I’ve added some “non-supported” feeds as blog posts at the moment but I hope to code for Pandora soon.

I think David did a really good job with this plugin and I can’t thank him enough for all the effort (no matter how easy it might have been for him) he put into this code. You can see the fruits of his labor at my lifestream here.
