Yahoo Hack DayI came up with a Yahoo Hack Day idea that I hope will be fun and useful. To get it to work well, I need sample data. Could you take this survey and ask others to do so, too? Thank you.

Mobile is the next big thing for news organizations, but not everyone has the time or manpower needed to create a site that looks good and works on all, or at least most, phones.

Google to the rescue.

For example,
will create a live RSS link that goes straight go GReader. Try it here.

Its not foolproof, but it does appear to work for Feedburner URLs.

A similar workaround may be available for Yahoo!Go, Yahoo’s mobile application, but I haven’t found one yet. Hints or pointers would be appreciated.
