I just built my first Yahoo Pipes application, using Gina Trapani’s Lifehacker tutorial. The app creates a single feed from my posts at O’Reilly’s ETel blog, TechCrunch UK and Corante’s Mobile Messaging 2.0. Here’s how I did it…

  • Create a Fetch module for all three feeds.
  • Pipe the fetched feeds into a Filter module that blocks any item where the dc:creator attribute is not ‘Imran Ali
  • Pipe the filtered items into a sort module to organise items into their descending date of publication.

Unfortunately, my TCUK posts don’t seem to be showing up…I wonder if this is because they’re several months old and not in the feed document?

I’m a little late to the Pipes party, but wow – I just made a mashup 🙂
