Google adds RSS reader to google.com/ig

Google's custom homepage just got a ton of new ajaxy features. I noticed in the "Create a Section" feature, you can put a RSS URL to add it to your homepage (I typed "URL to RSS feed" for demo purposes). You can see MetaFilter and A Whole Lotta Nothing in my new custom Google homepage

    Is it okay to take screen shots of web sites and then distribute it under a CC license (with yourself as the copyright holder)? I think Google still owns the copyright, and the CC license is null.
  • Matt Haughey 10y

    yeah, you're right ktheory. Usually I turn off CC for these screencaps.

    i cant make it work with flickr feeds though. how do i get a flickrr rss feed into the personlized google page (it seems to need an .xml extension, where do i get it from?)

    I like FeedFeeds which allows me to categorize my subscribed feeds.
