I've really got to reiterate / call out a few points from that last entry:
- I ❤ making feed scrapers, although they're sometimes a pain.
- I ❤ Microformats, for making scrapers easy.
- I ❤ Ficlets for using Microformats and making it easy for me to use their site as an API using just XSL and HTTP GET.
I'd love to see more sites like Ficlets.
