Transphobia News Aggregated

As a trial I’ve added a news feed towards the bottom of the side bar on the right which shows transphobia news items reported in Google News, Yahoo! News or MSN News by doing combining the feeds, doing a search on “transphobia”, sorting by date and chucking out any items which aren’t unique.  It seems to be working OK but there’s only one way to find out for sure …

I don’t have time to report on everything but hopefully that means any stories I don’t blog will still be here for you in the newsfeed.  If you find it useful I’d appreciate a comment on this post as it takes up a lot of space in the sidebar so it has to earn its keep!

For the technical among you, it uses Yahoo! Pipes.  If you click on the link it’ll take you to my Pipes home directory.  There you can either get the RSS feed URL so you can add it to your own site or news reader if you prefer, or add it to a Blogger blog using a badge.   It could be customised to search for homophobia (or really anything) fairly easily.  I can get that done if you ask nicely!
