talks a bit about Feedwhip in a recent blog post.

Technical limitations aside, what I liked best about Feedwhip was the idea of getting a feed for information from anywhere. I’d like to see something which takes this further and produces a usable interface to page scrape directly into a feed. Something like that which could be thrown at Pipes would be incredible. A user could create a feed of any information they wanted without any coding at all and subscribe to it with any feed reader at all.

This is exactly the kind of thing I had in mind when I first created Feedwhip — the ability to take any information from anywhere on the net and turn it into something more useful to you. Progress towards that goal has been slow lately, but it’s gratifying to know that somebody else can sense where we’re heading way, way before we get there.
