Creating a firehose feed for Hacker News
By Dave Winer on Sunday, November 07, 2010 at 5:21 PM.

I've been wanting a feed that listed all the new items posted on Hacker News as they came online.  permalink

I asked if such a feed exists, and was told that it didn't but there is an API provided by Ronnie Roller that would return the data. permalink

I checked it out and it appears to work as advertised. permalink

I wrote a little app that creates a feed from the API. permalink
