Kevin pointed out Flock, an RSS aggregator written in java deployed as a webapp. It’s nifty enough, although what I really need something that will keep track of what I’ve read from multiple places. I use a windows laptop for work which generally stays at work and a linux box at home. I read the most interesting looking posts of the day from work during coffee breaks or lunch, and often go back over the days news in the evening.
So here’s my project – a news aggregator web app that maintains a ‘read’ status on items. A web interface, but also a SOAP interface so I can roll my own client to read news. This could be a good excuse to fool about with Mozilla and XUL?
