On Scraping the Screens for Making the Feeds

Filed under: My Services,RSS — Marshall Kirkpatrick @

I wrote this post on ReadWriteWeb for Marshallk.com originally as it had been such a long time since I last posted here, but I showed the screencast I made for it to Richard MacManus at ReadWriteWeb and he asked me to post it there instead. I was happy to do so, but do want to point it out to readers here. I post a lot at RWW but I think this one will be of particular interest to readers here.

The highlights of the post are the link to this Wired article about the economy of screen scraping (great article) and this screencast about how to use Dapper that I finally recorded.

These types of tools are things I use often in my consulting work. They are really exciting and worth a close examination by anyone who reads this blog.
