The Social Networker

by Chris Miller at 05:05:06 PM on Tuesday, October 30th, 2007
I came across yet another aggregator site called (my page test) from Y Europe.  Adding accounts was quite simple from the start and they allow you to change many parts of the UI.  You can even modify the CSS, skins and even a custom domain.  I will shoot a soup domain over later through a CNAME record.

One thing that I didn't like is the default page that you get while adding feeds.  The feeds are not chronological, but by the feed it seems.  Also, the input box for quick microblog posts was black on black.  Black on black?  take a look below

So let me see what I missed in making this work to give some more feedback.

    Hey Chris, thanks for checking out Soup!

    The issue with non-chronological feeds is unique to StumbleUpon, I believe... they don't appear to be publishing correct dates in their RSS. I'll have another look at it, but I guess we should remove them from the dropdown menu of suggested feed imports.

    The black on black text is definitely a bug that slipped through, it'll be fixed in the next days.

    Let us know if you have any more feedback.

    Cheers, Christopher

    Any reason why I would choose to use this rather than other aggregators, Netvibes for example?

    @Stuart - nothing I can see yet. Dandelife seems to have a good lead right now in what I am playing with

Yes this is a blatant theft of the outline that Jess uses on her page, but I asked permission. Why?? Because I am a hardcore admin and can make ugly tables to make you developers frustrated, but this was too nice to pass up.

One dog, a Pug. He has been on this world before and seems to understand slippers and a fine cigar. Mind you that is him in the chair and not me.

Character Bio:

This will take far more time than I have today. I will start with I was born and still live in St. Louis, MO. Even though for a couple years I was never, ever here and always on the road, this is smack in the middle of the US. Everything is just a few hour flight. That part is nice. No beach/ocean/coast isn't the best. But with the travel I make up for it.

Don't Panic

Looking to find me in person? Here is where I will be.
