stirman.net

stirman.net is a page I came across a couple of weeks ago thanks to
Natalie Jost, one of my regular reads, it actually is a very close demonstration of an idea I have been thinking about lately. I’ve wanted to setup a page that tells me a few items of news (from the bbc website), who has blogged recently (the feeds from my regular reads portion of my feed reader) and maybe some twitter streams of my friends (except I don’t know or have many friends, who use Twitter). I also wanted to include a Google search bar on my site, I guess it’s kind of like the personalised home pages, but with a greater focus on what it is I want, and of course, presented nicely. Now sadly I don’t think I have the know-how to set something like this up. I hope to mock it up soon though, but til then I’m considering giving this a test run to see how it works!
