Gossip pointed me to an interesting Jabber Bot. I’m using my own RSS feed to test it out.

That’s one way to get interoperability. I just hope that someone in the IMSB knows about Jabber.
I wish they’d update it more often. Half the time I see a stroy I want to do a blog entry on, I come here and my Blogwatch version hasn’t been updated. Gotta do it manually (again)
