New feed aggregator from Dave Winer

It is out of the box, ready to be tested

My main reason for doing this work is to help bootstrap some new
features in the market, specifically in two areas: Podcasting and
Reading Lists. But first, I need to get a basic release out, get it
running on some servers and desktops, and get feedback from users.

Guerrila X-mas time

Ten good ideas.

1. Decorate a tree in public. In a park, on a street, outside your workplace, places you would least expect it.

2. Leave tiny anonymous gifts with notes that say “something for you”.

3. Put fortunes written on paper into people’s pockets when you go to parties.

4. Write letters telling people you admire them and that you’re greatful for their existence.

5. Buy a tree for someone else.

6. Write peaceful quotes in public places with chalk.

7. Guerilla carolling…Sing x-mas carols on people answering machines.

8. Plant some bulbs in pots, place them in locations that could use some life.

9. If you live in a snowy climate write large notes in the snow on
people’s front lawns (when they are out). If you live in a warm climate
you can hang greetings in the trees.

10. Make a treasure map of the best x-mas lights in your town. Hand it out so people can do a tour.
