blogger poker and more rss

on Friday, October 14th, 2005 ... ob: games + geek

I signed up for the Online Poker Blogger Championship ( reg code: 1374973 ). Pokerstars is giving bloggers 2000 chips for a no limit holdem game for quite a few nice prizes. Who am I to turn down a free tourney ;). It all goes down Sunday Oct 23rd. Let me know if you sign up…

In rss news, rojo added forums and a public feed outgoing feed for its users. You can subscribe to what I read on rss. Now to make their OPML files public and linkable.

Google launched their rss reader. Witholding opinion until I use it for a day or two. It does seem a bit slow with a few navigation options.

Finally, blinkbits looks curious and horribly disorganized. A heavily hacked copy of phpBB, they are providing 1 million scraped feeds from wikipedia. The real need is an RSS feed for wikipedia watchlists, but this may be the closest thing yet.
