Get out your RSS wrench: Portland Data Plumbing User Group

Want to share the ways you consolidate different data streams to make your life better? Interested in learning more about RSS wizardry? Are your Yahoo! Pipes clogged?

Well, you’ll be glad to hear that there’s a new (or at least, resurrected) user group in Portland that will allow you to compare notes with other plumbers of your ilk: Portland Data Plumbing User Group.

I’ve decided to resurrect the Portland Data Plumbing Group to give us a time and place to talk about RSS feed hacking, Yahoo Pipes, Dapper, and other related technologies.

I know! What a way to start 2009. It sounds interesting, doesn’t it?

Well, what are you waiting for? A dangling preposition? (Sorry. Grammar humor.)

Get involved by joining the Portland Data Plumbing User Group discussion and RSVP for the first event, Tuesday, January 13.

  1. Any time you can combine plumbing humor and grammar humor in the same post has to be a win 🙂

    Thanks for posting about the group! Now, I just need to find a place to hold them …

  2. I hope to make it to a few. My bag of RSS tricks is relatively limited, but it would be great to hear what others are doing.

    Tweeted this proposed future topic as well: Given that Yahoo! has been shutting down stuff left and right, alternatives to Pipes?

  3. Excitement and joy! Thanks for starting this, Dawn!
