The Washington Post keeps growing online, so I thought it would be interesting to see what it looks like as a river of news. 

  1. So I wrote a little scraper in Frontier to turn their RSS feeds page into an OPML file, and fed the result to River4
  2. I put together a single-page viewer at washpost.newsriver.org and let it fill up with stories. 
  3. I already found one piece I wouldn't have found before. A George Will op-ed about Donald Trump. I look forward to reading it. (Apparently he doesn't like Trump.)
  4. I've added a WP tab to my collection of rivers page, in case you're using that resource.

And it's giving me some more ideas, which I guess was the point. ;-)
