Wikipedia Signpost RSS Feed

Posted in wikipedia at 11:26 pm by danvk

Unbeknownst to most of its readers, Wikipedia has its own weekly newspaper, the Wikipedia Signpost. It covers stories in the press about Wikipedia, internal controversies, and technical changes to Wikipedia.

The Signpost was sorely lacking an RSS feed, so I’ve put one together at http://feeds.feedburner.com/WikipediaSignpost. The feed should get updated weekly with the Signpost, with only an hour or two delay from publication.

I set this up as a simple Ruby script, but in retrospect, had I been more ambitious, I would have used Plagger or Dapper.
